Ground based in situ observations of nephelometer at South Pole (US6004G)

Abstract:
Ground based in situ observations of nephelometer at South Pole (US6004G). These measurements are gathered as a part of the following projects GAW-WDCA, NOAA-ESRL and they are stored in the EBAS database (http://ebas.nilu.no/). Parameters measured are: aerosol_light_backscattering_coefficient in aerosol (volume_backwards_scattering_coefficient_in_air_due_to_dried_aerosol_particles), aerosol_light_backscattering_coefficient in aerosol (volume_backwards_scattering_coefficient_in_air_due_to_dried_aerosol_particles), aerosol_light_backscattering_coefficient in aerosol (volume_backwards_scattering_coefficient_in_air_due_to_dried_aerosol_particles), aerosol_light_scattering_coefficient in aerosol (volume_scattering_coefficient_in_air_due_to_dried_aerosol_particles), aerosol_light_scattering_coefficient in aerosol (volume_scattering_coefficient_in_air_due_to_dried_aerosol_particles), aerosol_light_scattering_coefficient in aerosol (volume_scattering_coefficient_in_air_due_to_dried_aerosol_particles)
