NCAR/NSF C-130 Aerosol CCN Data [Hudson]

Summary

This data set contains measurements of the cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) spectra with the original Desert Research Institute (DRI) airborne CCN spectrometer which was on board the NCAR C-130 aircraft. This data set is an update of CCN spectra on the 100m circles for each flight. These are averages of the two (sometimes one and sometimes three) approximately half hour runs at 100m altitude.
