Short Name:

ATom: CO2, CH4, and CO Measurements from Picarro, 2016-2018

This dataset contains atmospheric measurements of CO2, CH4, and CO mixing ratios made with a Picarro G2401 spectrometer during the four ATom campaigns. Picarro G2401 uses Wavelength-Scanned Cavity Ring Down Spectroscopy (WS-CRDS), a time-based measurement utilizing a near-infrared laser to measure a spectral signature of the molecule. For the ATom mission, the Picarro instrument was modified in the laboratory to operate across the full pressure altitude range of flight campaigns. The instrument was also modified to have a shorter measurement interval.
