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 measurements of mixing ratios of NO, NO2, NOX, and O3, using different gaseous precursors and concentrations. The following precursors were used:
Alpha-pinene,
Beta-caryophyllene,
Isoprene,
Limonene,
Linalool,
Myrcene
at the following concentrations:
30 parts per billion,
50 parts per billion,
250 parts per billion
