Volcanic Gas Measurements at Mount Cleveland, 14-15 August 2015

February 26, 2017

Helicopter-based, upward-looking differential optical absorption spectroscopy (DOAS) measurements of scattered solar ultraviolet radiation and Multi-Component Gas Analyzer System (Multi-GAS) measurements of trace gas concentrations were made while traversing beneath and through the gas plume emitted from Mount Cleveland volcano on 14-15 August, 2016. Radiance spectra and gas compositions were recorded at 1 second time resolution. Each spectrum and gas measurement was stamped with the GPS time and location. Each spectrum was saved in a separate ASCII file which includes 2048 radiances measured in the 285 - 430 nm spectral region and metadata associated with each acquisition. The Multi-GAS measurements are saved in a spreadsheet in the *.csv format.
