Measurement of tropospheric aerosolsEntry ID: 007-93_01
Abstract: The dataset contains twelve samples (of about five days each) of tropospheric
aerosol less than < 3 micrometer fractionated into five particle diameter
ranges (Dp: 2.84, 2.04, 1.4, 0.8, 0.441 micrometer) and a backup filter
collecting all particles < 0.41 micrometer, and samples of all precipitation
during the sampled period. They were taken at King George Island, Antarctica,
from January 29 to March 27, 1995, during the XXXII Chilean Scientific
Antarctic Expedition. The sampler was located near the sea at the top of a 60-m
high hill. Chemical analysis of the samples includes quantification of the
species present in the soluble and insoluble fractions. In the last case, an
acid digestion in a microwave furnace was used.

ISO Topic Category
Quality The dataset generated contains samples of the" impactadores of cascade,"of the
high volume sampler and the ozone sampler. These data have been analysed
chemically and statistically. The organic species have been quantified
according to the obtained results of the organic species in air and water.
Access Constraints Restricted to the Approval of the Main Investigator.
