RICO: NCAR/NSF C-130 Aerosol Cloud Particle 2D-S Data
For the 2D-S in RICO the size distribution and some basic scalar quantities are archived at 1 Hz. Two different estimates of the Particle Size Distribution (PSD) are calculated and archived. The two PSDs correspond to methods 4 and 6 of 2DSView, the software package used to create the archive files. 2DSView may be obtained upon request from SPEC inc. and may be used for more tailored processing than the 1 Hz processing provided in the archive.
Each day's research Flight have two files, one for 2DS H-channel data, one for V-channel data.
The data file name gives the Flight number
year month day YYYYMMDD
the instrument 2DS
