The interior of the instrumented NASA DC-8 aircraft as prepared for takeoff. The UHSAS data were collected during ATom deployments.

Calibration and in-flight performance data for Ultra-High Sensitivity Aerosol Spectrometers used during ATom deployments is now available.

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.

New data collected during ATom flights provide measurements of aerosols and black carbon concentrations in the atmosphere.
