Two New Datasets from ATom

Image of ATom-1 deployment flight tracks and black carbon mass-mixing ratio.

Flight tracks of the NASA DC-8 during the ATom-1 deployment. The scale to the right represents black carbon mass-mixing ratio in units of ng rBC/kg of air.

ATom: Nucleation Mode Aerosol Size Spectrometer Calibration and Performance Data
This dataset provides extensive calibration and in-flight performance data for two nucleation mode aerosol size spectrometer (NMASS) instruments utilized in the NASA Atmospheric Tomography Mission (ATom) deployments 1 and 2.

ATom: Black Carbon Mass Mixing Ratios from ATom-1 Flights
This dataset provides black carbon (BC) mass mixing ratios (in units of ng BC / kg air) measured during the ATom-1 campaign in July and August 2016. The associated latitude, longitude, altitude, and the timestamp of each measurement are included at ten seconds resolution.

The Atmospheric Tomography Mission (ATom) is a NASA Earth Venture Suborbital-2 mission. All flights begin in California, fly north to the western Arctic, south to the South Pacific, east to the southern Atlantic, north to Greenland, and return to California across central North America.
