Measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration from flasks collected by the Medusa system during ATom-4 flights in 2018.

NASA's Atmospheric Tomography (ATom) campaign collected whole air samples and measurements of formaldehyde during round-the-world flights.

Atmospheric Oxygen and CO2 Concentrations

AO2 Measurements

Example cross-sections of CO2, O2, and APO (O2 + 1.1 * CO2) measured by AO2 (interpolated flight track data) and the Medusa flask sampler (filled circles) during the Pacific southbound flights of ATom-4 in April and May 2018.

Data collected by the Airborne Oxygen Instrument (AO2) during the Atmospheric Tomography (ATom) airborne campaigns are now available.

Properties of Tropical Aerosols
