University of Wyoming King Air (UWKA) Low-Rate Flight Level Data

Low-Rate Flight Level Data colllected on board the University of Wyoming King Air (UWKA) during the Biomass Burning Fluxes (BB‐FLUX) campaign to quantify absolute emission fluxes in wildfires. This project was concurrent with the WE-CAN project, which utilized the NSF/NCAR C130 aircraft to probe wildfire emissions and secondary plume chemistry during the 2018 fire season in the Pacific Northwest. The project was nominally based out of Boise, ID. During the project, refueling with second missions was done at a number of airports. During the project the aircraft was relocated several other airports: Redding, CA (24-26 August 2018); Redmond, OR (5-15 September 2018); and Provo, UT (15-17 September 2018). Intercomparisons with the NSF/NCAR C-130 were done on 2 August 2018 and 28 August 2018.
