Aerosol scattering coefficient data set of Shiquanhe station in Ali area (2019)

The data set contains the scattering coefficients of PM2.5 (particles less than 2.5 μ m) at 450nm, 550nm and 700nm at Shiquanhe national climate station (32 ° 30'n, 80 ° 05'e, altitude 4278.6 m). The measuring instrument is tsi-3563 integral turbidimeter, the observation period is from July 8, 2019 to August 2, 2019, and the time resolution is 10 seconds. It can be used to study the dependence of PM2.5 scattering coefficient on the wavelength of incident light, which can reflect the particle size distribution of PM2.5.

Data file naming and use method

File name: data files are stored in dat file format. The file name is“ NLyymmdd.DAT ", yymmdd refers to the specific generation time of the file, where YY is the year, mm is the month, and DD is the date. For example, the file name nl190708 is generated on July 8, 2019
Data reading mode: the data file can be opened with Notepad, where T represents time record, B, G, R represents photon number record, D represents data record, and Y represents auxiliary information record.
