Objectives and Approach

The objective of this project is to obtain a statistically-significant data set of the vertical distribution of aerosol properties (e.g., light scattering and absorption, particle chemistry).

The measurements will be used to answer the following scientific questions:

The measurements will be made by flying a light aircraft (Cessna C-172N) over the SGP site and utilizing a similar aerosol instrument package to the one at SGP. The aircraft will fly level legs at altitudes between 500 m and 3500 m several times per week over the course of one year. How much aerosol do we miss staying at or below 3.5 km?

This is a joint effort between the ARM program and ESRL/GMD of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Atmospheric Properties

These plots are designed to provide a quick look at the measured aerosol properties. They display raw unedited data, but known corrections for instrument errors have been applied.
