NSF/NCAR C-130 3-Wavelength Total and Submicron Aerosol Scattering Coefficients

Summary

This data set contains the 3-wavelength total and submicron aerosol scattering coefficients measured with TSI 3563 nephelometer inside C-130.

Data for each flight is supplied in its own ASCII file. Filenames are structured, for example "SCAT_C130_20081015_R0withclouds.ict" indicates a file with possible droplets shutter events included and "SCAT_C130_20081015_R0.ict" indicates a file with droplets shutter events excluded. These data were collected during VOCALS on the NSF/NCAR C-130.
