Description

This dataset provides information to access NASA Earthdata published flight data and flight information collected by the Alpha Jet Atmospheric eXperiment (AJAX) and associated with the COMEX project in 2014-2015. The file lists information for COMEX-related datasets that has been subsetted from AJAX collections archived through NASA's Atmospheric Science Data Center. AJAX data are not otherwise replicated in this dataset. AJAX is a partnership between NASA's Ames Research Center and H211, L.L.C., which conducted in-situ measurements over California, Nevada, and the coastal Pacific in support of satellite validation. During COMEX data collection, a Picarro greenhouse gas (GHG) sensor was mounted on an Alpha Jet, a tactical strike fighter developed by Dassault-Breguet and Dornier through a German-French NATO collaboration. The GHG sensor made repeat measurements in California and Nevada. In situ data included measurements of CO2, CH4, and H2O at 2 Hz or CH4 and H2O at 10 Hz with a strategy of characterizing atmospheric structure over ocean and land, and vertical profiles to at least 5000 m. Ancillary data, including O3, formaldehyde, and meteorological profiles, were also collected. This dataset provides filenames, spatiotemporal bounds, and download URLs for accessing these in situ data. This information is provided in comma separated values (CSV) format.
