Description

This dataset, collected with the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Chromatograph for Atmospheric Trace Species (UCATS), provides atmospheric concentrations of nitrous oxide (N2O), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), methane (CH4), hydrogen (H2), carbon monoxide (CO), water vapor (H2O), and ozone (O3). The UCATS system is three different instruments in one enclosure: a two-channel chromatograph with electron capture detectors (one measures N2O and SF6, the other measures CH4, H2 and CO), a tunable diode laser instrument for H2O, and a dual-beam O3 photometer.
