HIPPO Pressure-Weighted Mean Total, 10-km, and 100-m Interval Column Concentrations

This dataset contains the total column and vertical profile data for all Missions, 1 through 5, of the HIAPER Pole-to-Pole Observations (HIPPO) study of carbon cycle and greenhouse gases. The pressure-weighted mean column concentrations of parameters reported in this data set are estimates of the quantities that would be observed from a total column instrument at the top of each profile, i.e., from an airplane looking down or from a satellite. The Missions took place from 08 January 2009 to 08 September 2011. There are five spacedelimited format ASCII files included with this data set that have been compressed into one *.zip file for convenient download. Please refer to the readme for more information. Note that EOL Version 1.0 corresponds to R. 20121129 previously served by ORNL.
