DATA POLICY

The data are available free of charge for non-commercial and scientific use. By using this data, you as data user accept that an offer of co-authorship will be made through personal contact with the data providers or owners whenever substantial use is made of their data. In all cases, an acknowledgement must be made to the data providers or owners and to the project name when these data are used within a publication. When used, the dataset should be cited using the Digital Object Identifier (DOI).

DATA DESCRIPTION

Measured surface concentrations of EC, OC, sulfate and nitrate collected from four networks and corresponding modeled concentrations from the chemistry transport model OsloCTM3. Information about individual networks is listed below. 

EMEP/ACTRIS: EMEP (European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme) [Tørseth et al., 2012] and ACTRIS (Aerosols, Clouds and Trace gases Research InfraStructure)[Cavalli et al., 2016; Putaud et al., 2010], archived in the EBAS data base ((http://ebas.nilu.no) at NILU - Norwegian Institute for Air Research. Measurements of EC and OC are in the PM2.5 range, whereas nitrate and sulfate measurements are filter-based  with no size cutoff limit.


CASTNET: the US national Clean Air Status and Trends monitoring network (CASTNET), available from at http://www.epa.gov/castnet. 


IMPROVE: The Interagency Monitoring of Protected Visual Environments (IMPROVE), a collaborative association of state, tribal, and federal agencies, and international partners, with the US EPA as the primary funding source and support from the National Park Service. Data available from http://vista.cira.colostate.edu/Improve/. IMPROVE provides mass of aerosols using filter analysis of measurements of PM2.5


CAWNET: the Atmosphere Watch Network (CAWNET) operated by the Chinese Meteorological Administration (CMA). Mass of individual aerosol species  obtained from aerosol chemical composition analysis performed on PM10 samples and given in Zhang et al. [2012].

All data are annual averages for 2010 (with the exception of CAWNET measurements, which were carried out in 2006-2007) and given in µg m-3.
