Tropospheric ORganic CHemistry Experiment (TORCH) was a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Polluted Troposphere Research Programme project (Round 1 - NER/T/S/2002/00145. Duration 2002 - 2005) led by A. Lewis, University of York. TORCH 2 took place in April and May 2004 at Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory, on the north Norfolk coast.

This dataset contains butane and benzene measurements from a MADS-GCMS.

These data were also collected as part of the Polluted Troposphere: Advanced GC-MS technology for observing OVOCs and NMHCs in the polluted troposphere project.
