Monitoring of Atmospheric Particles

Monitoring of Atmospheric Particles Particle data from Canadian and U.S. ground-based monitoring networks from 1982 forward include the following: - Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD); - Aerosol Size Distribution; - Aerosol Number; - Aerosol Chemical Composition; - Particulate Matter Mass; - Particulate Matter <= 2.5 microns (PM2.5); - Particulate Matter <= 10 microns (PM10); - Particulate Metals. For further information about Atmospheric Particles Data, see the Monitoring of Atmospheric Particles_Metadata.pdf file. These measurements help scientists understand the linkages between aerosol chemical composition, aerosol radiative properties, cloud formation and precipitation. 2022-02-23 Environment and Climate Change Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentAirAir QualityAtmospheric MonitoringNAtChemNetworks and StudiesAtmospheric ParticlesGreat Lakes BasinGLBAerosol Robotic (Canadian) NetworkAEROCANAerosol Optical DepthAODAerosol_Sizespeciationparticulate matterPM2.5Metals MonitoringAtmosphericParticles_ SurveillanceDesParticulesAtmosphériques-Description_EN-FR.pdfPDF http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/air/monitor/monitoring-of-atmospheric-particles/MonitoringAtmosphericParticles_SurveillanceDesParticulesAtmosphriques-Description_EN-FR.pdf View EC Data Mart (English)HTML http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/air/monitor/monitoring-of-atmospheric-particles View EC Data Mart (French)HTML http://data.ec.gc.ca/data/air/monitor/monitoring-of-atmospheric-particles?lang=fr
