Abstract

The North Atlantic Marine Boundary Layer Experiment (NAMBLEX) campaign was conducted at Mace Head in Ireland from 24 July 2002 to 3 September 2002. During this campaign a suite of instruments, including several from the Universities Facility for Atmospheric Measurements (UFAM). This dataset consists of airborne atmospheric chemistry samples from the D-CALM Canister Sampler on-board the NERC DO228-101 D-CALM Aircraft. Flights took place on the 8th and 10th August 2002.
