This dataset provides concentrations of sulfur dioxide (SO2) measured by the Laser Induced Fluorescence Instrumentation for Sulfur Dioxide (SO2-LIF) on the ATom-4 campaign in April and May 2018. The LIF-SO2 instrument detects SO2 at the single-part per trillion level using red-shifted laser-induced fluorescence. Measurements are reported at 1-second intervals along the flight paths. Sources of SO2 atmosphere from natural sources include volcanic eruptions and wildfires; however, most anthropogenic sources, such as fossil fuel combustion, arise. SO2 influences some negative health and environmental impacts and is an important precursor of aerosols in the nucleation of new particles globally.
