Title: Airborne sampling program for the 1992 ARB Southern California transport assessment study.

Principal Investigator / Author(s): Anderson, Jerry A

Contractor: Sonoma Technology, Inc.

Contract Number: A132-162

Research Program Area: Atmospheric Processes

Topic Areas: Field Studies, Transport


The California Air Resources Board (ARB) sponsored a meteorological and air quality data collection program in Southern California during the summer and fall of 1992. During the field measurement portion of the program, continuous upper-air wind and temperature data were collected using radar wind profilers. Additional air quality and meteorological measurements were made during 13 sampling flights performed by an instrument aircraft.

The aircraft data were previously reported to the ARB in a separate data volume and are not included herein. This report documents the airborne sampling that was performed. The report details the sampling instrumentation used, the operation procedures followed, and the quality assurance steps used to produce the data that were reported.
