This dataset contains measurements of formaldehyde using laser induced fluorescence (LIF) made at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics land station (IAP), Beijing site during the winter and summer campaigns for the Atmospheric Pollution & Human Health in a Chinese Megacity (APHH) programme.

Formaldehyde concentration measurements in pptv were made using the Leeds Formaldehyde instrument which uses off-resonance laser induced fluorescence at 353 nm to detect ambient formaldehyde. The instrument was calibrated at regular intervals during the campaign using a commercial permatube containing paraformaldehyde.
