Short Name:

ATom: L2 Particulate Iodine from High-Resolution Aerosol Mass Spectrometer (HR-AMS)

This dataset provides mass concentrations of particulate iodine as measured by the High-Resolution Aerosol Mass Spectrometer (HR-AMS) during the first two deployments of the NASA Atmospheric Tomography airborne missions (ATom-1 and ATom-2) in 2016 and 2017, respectively. The data provided in this dataset result from a reanalysis of the initial HR-AMS data based on post-mission calibrations and are reported at 1-minute resolution. The dataset also includes the fractions of the main ions (I+, HI+, and I2+) that can be used to ascertain the oxidation state of iodine in particles. Each observation includes an air mass classification flag (tropospheric or stratospheric conditions) based on collocated in situ water vapor and ozone measurements and positional data from the HR-AMS data feed.
