Stratosphere-Troposphere Analyses of Regional Transport (2008) Data Download Page

Project Description Stratosphere-Troposphere Analyses of Regional Transport (START08) studied
the chemical and transport characteristics of the extratropical upper tropospheric and lower stratospheric region
using the NSF/NCAR GV research aircraft. A total of 18 flights were conducted in the United States and Canada
during April, May and June, 2008.

Data Description: The following table contains download links for merged 1 second aircraft data and merged HAIS Advanced Whole Air Sampler (AWAS) data for each START08 NCAR GV flight. Links to flight track information for each flight are also available in the 'Flight Track' column. Detailed information about the 1 second aircraft and AWAS merges are available via the README link at the top of each of the Data download columns. All the merge files for each Data set can be downloaded in a single .zip file via the links labeled 'RF01-RF18.ZIP' at the bottom of each respective data column.
