Description

This dataset provides airborne in situ observations of submicron organic aerosol (OA) mass concentrations during the first (mid-2016) and second (early-2017) global deployments of the Atmospheric Tomography Mission (ATom), as well as modeled submicron OA mass concentrations along the flight tracks from global chemistry models that implement a variety of commonly used representations of OA sources and chemistry. In situ observations include non-refractory submicron aerosols measured by the High-Resolution Aerosol Mass Spectrometer (HR-AMS), aerosol volume concentrations measured by the Aerosol Microphysical Properties package (AMP), black carbon mass content measured by the Single Particle Soot Photometer (NOAA SP2), and refractory and non-refractory aerosol composition measured by the Particle Analysis By Laser Mass Spectrometry (PALMS). Both observed and modeled data are provided at a 60-second temporal resolution. The data are provided in netCDF format.
