Mt. Wilson Flask Data from NOAA ESRL GMD

The Global Monitoring Division of NOAA ESRL has made available their preliminary data from programmable flask package (PFP) samples at Mt. Wilson, CA (lat = 34.22, lon = -118.06, alt. = 1774 m ASL) from April 30 - July 29, 2010.

This page was created on 2011-03-17. Subsequent revisions may include additional compounds.

These data are made freely available to the public and the scientific community in the belief that their wide dissemination will lead to greater understanding and new scientific insights. The availability of these data does not constitute publication of the data. NOAA relies on the ethics and integrity of the user to assure that ESRL receives fair credit for their work. If the data are obtained for potential use in a publication or presentation, ESRL should be informed at the outset of the nature of this work. If the ESRL data are essential to the work, or if an important result or conclusion depends on the ESRL data, co-authorship may be appropriate. This should be discussed at an early stage in the work. Manuscripts using the ESRL data should be sent to ESRL for review before they are submitted for publication so we can insure that the quality and limitations of the data are accurately represented.

The data is available in two formats:
a raw text file (zipped) containing all the compounds, or
an Igor experiment (zipped) with all the data read into waves.
There are also 'Readme' files (zipped) for each compound (zipped into one file).
