Abstract

In situ atmospheric measurements using the Core instruments on the DLR Falcon20 aircraft onboard the DLR Falcon 20 E-5 aircraft for the icare-QUAD- Quality of Airborne Data (ICARE-QAD) project (flight reference: dlr-fa20_4727_20101029_icare).

Data were collected over the Toulouse, France area.
