SetupSkyLOSA: A MATLAB Tool to support Acquisition of Sky-LOSA Data (v1.0) Bradley M. Conrad

Short summary
A general uncertainty analysis (GUA) is performed for the sky-LOSA technique used to remotely measure soot emissions from gas flares. GUA data are compiled in an open-source software tool to help sky-LOSA users select critical setup and acquisition parameters while giving quantitative visual feedback on anticipated uncertainties for a specific measurement. The software tool enables easy acquisition of optimal measurement data, significantly increasing the accessibility of the sky-LOSA technique.
