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

The data set contains the scattering and absorption coefficients of PM2.5 (particles with particle size less than 2.5 μ m) in the atmosphere of Shiquanhe national reference climate station (32 ° 30'n, 80 ° 05'e, altitude 4278.6 m) in Ali Region. The measurement instrument is photoacoustic extinctiomer (pax), the observation period is from July 13, 2019 to August 2, 2019, and the time resolution is 1 minute. The data set can be used to study the scattering and absorption characteristics of PM2.5 over the Tibetan Plateau.

Data file naming and use method

File name: the data file is stored in the format of CSV file. The file name is "pax-071"_ M0_ yyyymmdd.csv ", 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 pax-071 was generated on July 13, 2019_ M0_ 20190713。
Data reading method: the data file can be opened by Excel, the first and second columns are time, and the rest are aerosol data measured.
