Data acquisition and analysis
Data acquisition and analysis

  • 14 data channels centered at wavelengths (l) 354 – 2139 nm

  • Data sampled at 10 Hz and averaged over 2 sec during flights

  • 2-sec voltage means and stds written to raw data file

  • September MLO sunrise calibration results used to calculate aerosol optical depth (AOD) at 13 l (using OMI columnar ozone data) and columnar water vapor (CWV) at 941 nm

  • AODs at 12 l, CWVs, estimated uncertainties archived with a/c latitude, longitude, GPS and P altitudes, static P, and spectral AOD fitting parameters in modified Gaines-Hipskind formatted files for 10/26, 10/27, and 10/28 flights


System performance issues
System performance issues

  • Tracking changes caused by reflection off wing during aircraft turns

  • Reflection of the sun off the higher wing occasionally led to a small deviation in AATS-14 tracking that yielded slightly elevated or depressed signals in some science channels.

  • These reflections occurred when the relative azimuth of the AATS-to-sun vector coincided with the azimuth of the vector defined by the Twin Otter fuselage/higher wing intersection and the higher wing tip.

  • All affected data have NOT been removed from the archived files.

  • Computer clock timing uncertainties

  • Twin Otter computer, AATS can computer, AATS laptop

  • Anomalously high AODs in 1558-nm channel

  • These were observed during the MLO calibration and during COAST flights. The source of this problem may have been a light leak in the 1558-nm filter. AODs in this channel have been excluded from the archived files.
