Abstract

Data were collected on the 27th of November 2008 and on 5th of January 2009 by the University of Manchester multi-angle absorption photometer at Chilbolton site in support of the FAAM campaign in the South-West of the UK. The dataset contains measurements of concentrations of black carbon mass loadings based on aerosol optical absorption.

The data were collected for use in the CLOUDS project, which is one of multiple projects within the APPRAISE (Aerosol Properties, PRocesses And Influences on the Earth's climate) programme.
