NASA DC-8 10 Second Data Merge

This data set contains NASA DC-8 10 Second Data Merge data collected during the Deep Convective Clouds and Chemistry Experiment (DC3) from 18 May 2012 through 22 June 2012. These merges are an updated version provided by NASA. In most cases, variable names have been kept identical to those submitted in the raw data files. However, in some cases, names have been changed (e.g., to eliminate duplication). Units have been standardized throughout the merge. In addition, a "grand merge" has been provided. This includes data from all the individual merged flights throughout the mission. This grand merge will follow the following naming convention: "dc3-mrg10-dc8_merge_YYYYMMdd_R*_thruYYYYMMdd.ict" (with the comment "_thruYYYYMMdd" indicating the last flight date included). This data set is in ICARTT format. Please see the header portion of the data files for details on instruments, parameters, quality assurance, quality control, contact information, and data set comments. For the latest information on the updates to this dataset, please see the readme file.
