Properties of Tropical Aerosols

NASA DC-8 Aircraft.

The NASA DC-8 aircraft was used for the ATom missions.

Aerosol data collected during Atmospheric Tomography Mission (ATom) will inform on new particle formation occurrence in the tropics.

Atmospheric Profiles of Hydroxyl and Formaldehyde

Circles mark the locations of the 139 selected profiles sampling the remote troposphere. Circle color indicates HCHO column densities integrated over each ATom profile. Data are overlain on global gridded OMI HCHO column densities averaged over the mission. From Wolfe et al. (2019) (see dataset references).

New data from NASA's Atmospheric Tomography Mission (ATom) provide hydroxyl and formaldehyde column density in the remote troposphere.
