Abstract

Ionisation as a precursor to Aerosol Formation (also known as IONS) was a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Polluted Troposphere Research Programme project (Round 1 - NER/T/S/2002/00150 - Duration 2002 - 2005) and was led by Dr RG Harrison, University of Reading.

This dataset contains solar radiation, ground heat flux, air temperature, wind, dew point and relative humidity measurements at the University of Reading Atmospheric Observatory.
