The University of Aberystwyth mobile ozone lidar data contain measurements of ozone mixing ratios and aerosol information. The data were collected at Chilbolton observatory, Hampshire on the 7th and the 8th of June 2005.

The data collected on the 7th of June 2005 are of ozone mixing ratios only. The data collected on the 8th of June 2005 are of ozone mixing ratios, aerosol backscatter, and boundary layer height information.
