2002/04/27: ret-flight from Varadero/Cuba (23.1N,81.3W) to Duesseldorf/Germany(6.8E, 51.4N)

Brenninkmeijer, Carl A.M.; CARIBIC Team

The following data were collected and stored in the database: Ozone from two monitors (a fast 10Hz chemiluminescence sensor calibrated against a conventional u.v. absorption monitor, and u.v. photometer data with a temporal resolution of 15s), CO with a gas chromatograph, cloud condensation particles from three counters (CPC), 14 samples from an aerosol impactor for elemental/chemical analysis, and 12 canisters of air samples for laboratory analysis of CO2, CH4, CO, N2O, SF6, ~40 halocarbons, ~15 hydrocarbons and the isotope composition (13C/12C, 14C/12C, and 18O/16O of CO. Cf. also project description and the individual dataset summaries each of which represents one of the species mentioned above.

The data are analised and calibrated at the institutes in charge. For details cf the particular species/ dataset quality entry.
Each flight is a complete experiment. The datarecords provided with a set of self-explanatory header lines are stored into the database. Dataset-name and -accronym contain a string _Vxx which stands for the version of revision. Version V02 has more convenient header layout and a few obvious mistakes corrected in the data. Thus the highest version is recommended for download, lower versions serve as collateral.
The data all derive from the same measuring flight.
