This dataset contains measurements of wind, temperature, pressure, humidity and precipitation.
Oxidant and Particle Photochemical Processes above a South-East Asian tropical rain forest (OP3-Danum-08) is a 3-year Consortium Grant of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), beginning 1 October 2007.
The objectives of the OP3 project are (i) to understand how emissions of reactive trace gases from a tropical rain forest mediate the production and processing of oxidants and particles in the troposphere, and (ii) to better understand the impact of these processes on local, regional and global scale atmospheric composition, chemistry and climate.

Data were obtained during ground-based measurement periods at the Danum Valley Research centre (7th April - 4th May 2008 and 21st June - 27th July 2008), and by the FAAM (Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements) BAe 146 aircraft. Data were provided to the BADC as the OP3 campaign was underway, but may be updated with additional data.
