Description

This dataset provides in situ airborne measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) over California and Nevada on February 10-11, 2016. Measurements were taken onboard a DC-8 aircraft during this Active Sensing of CO2 Emissions over Nights, Days and Seasons (ASCENDS) airborne deployment. CO2 was measured with NASA's Atmospheric Vertical Observations of CO2 in the Earth's Troposphere (AVOCET) instrument while over California and Nevada. The objective of this deployment was to assess the performance of the 2016 version of the CO2 Sounder LiDAR. The two flights were flown to compare results from an experimental LiDAR sensor with the AVOCET instrument. Aircraft navigation and flight meteorological data are also provided. The data are provided in ICARTT and comma-separated values (CSV) formats.
