This dataset provides calculated age of air (AoA) and the argon/nitrogen (Ar/N2) ratio (per meg) from stratospheric flask samples and simultaneous high-frequency measurements of nitrous oxide (N2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), methane (CH4), and carbon monoxide (CO) compiled from three airborne projects. The trace gases were used to identify 235 flask samples with stratospheric influence collected by the Medusa Whole Air Sampler and to calculate AoA using a new N2O-AoA relationship developed using a Markov Chain Monte Carlo algorithm. The data span a wide range of latitudes poleward of 40 degrees in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres and cover the period 2009-01-10 to 2018-05-21.
