Aerosol profiles at BND

In June 2006 an instrumented light aircraft will begin flying vertical profile flights over the Bondville site. This Airborne Aerosol Observatory will measure aerosol optical properties, size distribution, chemistry and hygroscopicity. There will also be gas monitors on board for CO2 and ozone.

Hygroscopic growth at BND

Since 1995 measurements of the hygroscopic growth (f(RH)) factor have been made at BND through a collaboration between NOAA/ESRL and the University of Illinois. These results show both similarities and differences with f(RH) measurements made at other sites.

BND Aerosol Properties Plots

Atmospheric Properties

These plots are designed to provide a quick look at the measured aerosol properties. They display raw unedited data, but known corrections for instrument errors have been applied.
