Data archive

There is a need for a standardized set of field and laboratory datasets to be used for model development and evaluation. We have been collecting, archiving, and quality assuring both field (local-scale to mesoscale) and laboratory scale atmospheric transport and dispersion datasets to be used in model development, evaluation and uncertainty analysis studies. The arechived datasets inventory and their current status are listed below. In order to obtain any data set, please contact us.
