NASA DC-8 CRDS Aerosol Extinction Measured using Cavity Ringdown Spectroscopy

This data set contains NASA DC-8 CRDS Aerosol Extinction Measured using Cavity Ringdown Spectroscopy data collected during the Deep Convective Clouds and Chemistry Experiment (DC3) from 14 May 2012 through 22 June 2012. 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. Use of these data require PRIOR OK from PI. Latest Update:

  • We have identified a leak during this flight and have remove the data from the file (RF08).

  • Final data. Data collected in clouds removed due to particle artifacts from inlets.
