ORCAS Quantum Cascade Laser Spectrometer (QCLS) DUAL CO CH4 N2O

The Quantum Cascade Laser Spectrometer (QCLS) DUAL measured CO, CH4, and N2O concentrations in situ aboard the NSF/NCAR GV HIAPER (Gulfstream-V High-performance Instrumented Airborne Platform for Environmental Research) aircraft (Tail Number N677F) during the ORCAS (O2/N2 Ratio and CO2 Airborne Southern Ocean Study) campaign. This dataset contains CO_QCLS, CH4_QCLS, N2O_QCLS data in NASA Ames format collected during ORCAS.
