Data lineage:

Data were collected by the Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM) aircraft and the deployment of a number of the UK Universities' Facility for Atmospheric Measurement (UFAM) mobile instruments in summer 2007.
Data were then prepared by project participants and then submitted to BADC for archiving.
