NASA GASP (Global Atmospheric Sampling Program) Aircraft Observations, 1975Mar-1979Jul


This dataset contains flight-level aircraft measurements from five GASP aircraft during the period of March 1975 to July 1979. Parameters measured by the aircraft include various meteorological variables, ozone, carbon monoxide and particle densities, and flight information. The data records are in ASCII format, and are a constant length of 512 bytes.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
