Osan Airbase Aerosol, Water Vapor, and Ozone Balloon Sounding Data



Preliminary aerosol, water vapor, and ozonesonde balloon soundings conducted from Osan Airbase located in the Republic of Korea during the Asian Summer Monsoon Chemical and Climate Project (ACCLIP), August of 2022. There were eleven balloon flight days where up to three balloons were flown containing either combined payloads with a Handix Scientific Portable Optical Particle Spectrometer (POPS) and an En-Sci Cryogenic Frost Point Hygrometer (CFH), or single payloads with either a En-Sci ECC Ozonesonde (ECC O3), LASP Optical Particle Counter (LOPC) or a LASP Stratospheric Total Aerosol Counter (STAC). Each payload was equipped with a Intermet iMet-4-RSB radiosonde to measure state parameters at one second intervals.
