Abstract

The ACES (Aerosol Coupling in the Earth System) project was an integrated research programme that aims to reduce uncertainties in our fundamental understanding of the formation of BSOA (Biogenic Secondary Organic Aerosol) and the subsequent impact on atmospheric composition, through coordinated chamber studies, field studies, process model development, and application of atmospheric models of chemistry and transport to assess coupling and feedbacks in the Earth system.

This dataset contains Micrometeorological parameters and fluxes, measured at ground level. Data were collected during 2 periods (13 April 2008 - 3 May 2008 and 21 June 2008 - 23 July 2008) by the University of Manchester sonic anemometer based at the forest in-canopy site located at the FACE (Forests Absorbing CO2 Emissions) nursery at the Sabahmas Estate oil plantation in Malaysia.
