IceBridge Atmospheric Chemistry L1B Data, Version 1

The IceBridge Atmospheric Chemistry L1B Data set (ICHEM1B) contains measurements acquired over Antarctica using the AVOCET differential Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) gas analyzer instrument, the airborne Differential Absorption CO Measurement (DACOM) instrument, the Diode Laser Hygrometer (DLH) instrument, and the airborne Whole Air Sampler (WAS). The data set contains measurements for CO2, CO, CH4, N2O, H2O(v) and Whole Air Samples. The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded aircraft survey campaigns, and are stored in International Consortium for Atmospheric Research on Transport and Transformation (ICARTT) data format and are available from 12 October 2009 to 24 November 2009.
