CARIBIC (Civil Aircraft for Regular Investigation of the Atmosphere Based on an Instrumentation Container)
The following data were collected and stored in the database: Ozone from two monitors (a fast 10Hz chemiluminescence sensor calibrated against a conventional u.v. absorption monitor, and u.v. photometer data with a temporal resolution of 15s), CO with a gas chromatograph, cloud condensation particles from three counters (CPC), 14 samples from an aerosol impactor for elemental/chemical analysis, and 12 canisters of air samples for laboratory analysis of CO2, CH4, CO, N2O, SF6, ~40 halocarbons, ~15 hydrocarbons and the isotope composition (13C/12C, 14C/12C, and 18O/16O of CO. Cf. also project description and the individual dataset summaries each of which represents one of the species mentioned above.
