Project #2000-143 TOPSE
Tropospheric Ozone Production about the Spring Equinox
Elliot Atlas, et al.
NSF/NCAR EC-130Q Hercules (N130AR)
This site has the final documentation for the airborne measurements obtained from the NSF/NCAR Research Aviation Facility (RAF) EC-130Q Hercules aircraft during the Tropospheric Ozone Production about the Spring Equinox Project (TOPSE) which took place from 4 February to 23 May 2000.
Orders for the LRT (1 sps) production data set may be directed to RAF Data Manager, Ron Ruth. The data files also are available via anonymous ftp transfer; click here.
Both the raw and production output data have been archived to the NCAR/CISL Mass Store System (MSS) which has proven to be extremely reliable. However, we strongly urge data recipients to make their own archival copies to protect against damage or loss.
As you proceed with analysis of your data, you may have questions, encounter problems, or uncover discrepancies or other aspects of the data set that may be of interest to the RAF and other users. We ask that you bring these issues to the attention of the project managers or the RAF Manager:
