Status of measurements and data base

The central data base includes:

  • MOZAIC observations from August 1994 to December 2011.
  • Recent MOZAIC observations (January 2012 - December 2013) are not yet fully validated.
  • IAGOS observations (since October 2011) are not yet validated.

MOZAIC observations include:

  • geo-localisation (latitude, longitude, pressure),
  • meteorological observations (temperature, wind speed and direction),
  • ozone mixing ratio (ppbv)
  • relative humidity (%)
  • carbon monoxide mixing ratio (ppbv) from 2002
  • total nitrogen oxides (NOy, ppbv) on one aircraft from 2002 to 2005

IAGOS observations are the same as MOZAIC ones, except that:

  • NOy observations are replaced by nitrogen oxides (NOx, ppbv) observations
  • additional measurements come from the backscatter cloud probe (number and size of water droplets).
