This dataset provides black carbon (BC) mass mixing ratios (in units of ng BC / kg air) measured during NASA's Atmospheric Tomography (ATom)-1 flight campaign during July and August 2016. The BC-core masses of BC-containing aerosol particles were measured using a Single Particle Soot Photometer (SP2). Conversion to mass mixing ratio (MMR) is achieved by monitoring sample flow. Influences in air mass composition were determined using the Particle Analysis by Laser Mass Spectrometry (PALMS) instruments. Also included here are data from the Cloud, Aerosol and Precipitation Spectrometer (CAPS) instrument which are used to identify measurements taken while in clouds. Finally, the associated latitude, longitude, altitude, and the timestamp of each measurement are included. All data are at ten seconds resolution. ATom-1 flights originated from the Armstrong Flight Research Center in Palmdale, California, fly north to the western Arctic, south to the South Pacific, east to the Atlantic, north to Greenland, and return to California across central North America.
