Summary
This collection contains all measurements that have been performed in the frame of the EARLINET project during the period April 2000 - December 2015. Some of these measurements are also part of the collections 'Calipso', 'Climatology', 'SaharanDust' or 'VolcanicEruption'. In addition this collection also contains measurements from the categories 'Cirrus', 'DiurnalCycles', 'ForestFires', 'Photosmog', 'RuralUrban', and 'Stratosphere'. This collection also contains measurements not devoted to any of the above categories.

More information about these categories and the contributing stations can be found in the file 'EARLINET_general_introduction.pdf' accompanying this dataset.

Description
observation:Level 2b - Geophysical Variable - Basic Quality Control
The new EARLINET volumes contains respect to the old ones an update in terms of temporal coverage extending now until 2015, but more important the new volumes are updating also the old data content in terms of quality control of the data.
In particular, respect to the quality assurance procedures including instrument intercomparisons, intercomparison of the retrieval algorithms and some ad hoc tools for the continuous quality check of the instruments and algorithms, quality control procedures are run on the EARLINET database since February 2017. The current EARLINET data volumes include the results of the QC procedures on all the files reported into the EARLINET database since its beginning, updating the old EARLINET volumes publishing on CERA.
Automatic QC procedures checking the compliance of the data to specific technical aspects run on fly during the data submission phase. Off-line quality control procedures run systematically every 3 months on the whole database for further controls, mainly about the content of the data in terms of aerosol optical properties.
Each file contains information about the compliance of the file itself with specific quality control procedures established within the network. First of all, each file is labelled as compliant to: all the QCs, only the technical QCs, neither physical and technical implemented QC procedures. The precise information about the compliance/not compliance to each specific QC tests is reported in additional variables for technical and physical quality control procedures. A full documentation describing the quality control procedure is reported at the EARLINET website https://www.earlinet.org/index.php?id=125
The instruments and the algorithms used within the network have been intercompared and assessed. Relevant publications are reported in the references.
Description
According to agreements dummy files (nc.zip) were created and inserted in the database if data from timesteps were not delivered.
