Description

This dataset provides mass mixing ratios and number density of light-absorbing metallic aerosols (LAM) in the size range 180-1290 nm obtained with the NOAA Single Particle Soot Photometer (SP2) during the four deployments of the NASA Atmospheric Tomography (ATom) airborne mission from 2016-2018. The NOAA SP2 detects light absorbing aerosols, such as black carbon (BC), via laser-induced incandescence to provide real-time in situ quantification of refractory aerosol mass and number density. The percent of LAM aerosols attributed to anthropogenic iron oxides (FeOx) by mass is also provided.
