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. Data consist of surface level measurements of background ion production rates and small ion concentrations.

This dataset contains aerosol programmable ion mobility spectrometer (PIMS) and aerosol geiger counter measurements at the Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory (WAO), Norfolk.
