Polluted Troposphere IONS: Meteorological and Aerosol counter raw measurements from the University of Reading and Weybourne Atmospheric Observatories.
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 raw measurements of solar radiation, ground heat flux, air temperature, wind, dew point and relative humidity and aerosol counter from University of Reading and Weybourne Atmospheric Observatories.
