Data sets

Daily dust deposition fluxes at Izana, Tenerife collected by different techniques: particle size and composition from single particle electron microscopy A. Waza, K. Schneiders, and K. Kandler

Short summary
Deposition or other passive measurement techniques are used to sample mineral dust from the atmosphere. However, there exist a multitude of different collection instruments with different, usually not well-characterized sampling efficiencies, so the resulting data might be considerably biased with respect to their size representatively. In the paper, we report on collection properties of different deposition and other passive samplers based on single-particle measurements.
