BAS Aerolaser HCHO data at Halley Clean Air Sector laboratory (CASLab) for the CHABLIS Campaign (2004-2005)
Chemistry of the Antarctic Boundary Layer and the Interface with Snow (CHABLIS) is a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and Antarctic Funding Initiative (AFI) funded project, aimed at studying the chemistry of the Antarctic Boundary Layer in greater detail, and for a longer duration, than has previously been attempted. Field measurements were carried out at the British Antarctic Survey station, Halley, at the Clean Air Sector Laboratory (CASLab). Year-round measurements began in February 2004, and a summer campaign focussing on oxidants ran during January/February 2005, after which CHABLIS fieldwork ended. The dataset contains Formaldehyde concentration measured by Aerolaser HCHO Monitor Model AL4021. Access to this dataset is now public.
