Seven stage impactor data collected onboard the R/V SURVEYOR during RITS94, November 1993 to January 1994.
Berner-type multi-jet cascade impactor used for sample collection. Ion chromatography used for sample analysis. Details of the sampling and analysis methods can be found in Quinn et al., JGR, vol. 100, 6931, 1996. All diameters are reported in terms of 50% aerodynamic cutoff diameters (D50,aero). Sampling RH = 55 +/- 1.4%. Sampling temperature = 24 +/- 2.6degC.

The data files are available two formats: netCDF and an ascii, csv (comma separated value) format that should load directly into most spreedsheets. The csv file contains header lines that explain that data layout.
