ISSUE2017-10-11
OPC data from OPC located in the AMS rack of the DLR Falcon. The data are in the form of text files.

Description du jeu de données
RésuméThese are the size-resolved aerosol concentrations recorded by the Optical Particle Counter (OPC) in the MPI-C C-ToF-AMS rack on board of the DLR Falcon during the DACCIWA research flights.

2017-07-31, Changes with version v2:
- The data are now also corrected for temperature differences between ambient and instrument, or between standard temperature and instrument. This was done assuming a constant instrument temperature of 40 deg C.
- Cloud passages are removed using the flags in the DLR OPC data.
- Two columns were added: one with the total number concentration in all channels and one with the cloud flag.
- The missing data value is now negative and tabs at the end of lines are removed.
- Some missing data were discovered for the June 30 flight and added.
