February 12, 2013
Data from the HIAPER Pole-to-Pole Observations study of greenhouse gases and aerosols is now available to the atmospheric research community and the public. This comprehensive dataset provides the first high-resolution, vertically resolved measurements of over 90 unique atmospheric species collected during a series of nearly pole-to-pole flights over the Pacific Ocean, across all seasons.
