Description

This dataset provides the number, surface area, and volume concentrations and size distributions of dry aerosol particles measured by the Aerosol Microphysical Properties (AMP) instrument package during airborne campaigns conducted by NASA's Atmospheric Tomography (ATom) mission. Five instruments--two nucleation-mode aerosol size spectrometers (NMASS), two ultra-high sensitivity aerosol spectrometers (UHSAS), and a laser aerosol spectrometer (LAS)--comprise the AMP package. The AMP payload provides size distributions with up to one-second time resolution for dry aerosol particles between 0.003 and 4.8 microns in diameter.
