CDIAC HIPPO Data Archive :: hippo.ornl.gov This Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC) HIPPO data archive provides integrated measurement data products and user documentation. Files are in ASCII text format. Products include:
A comprehensive merged product at 10-second resolution for all high-rate measurements (40 measurements of 26 unique species, not counting flask measurements)
Combined results from all discrete whole air sample and gas chromatograph measurements (77 unique species)
Pressure-weighted mean column concentration data -- total, 10 km and 100 m intervals
Included are results from 90+ species from six categories, all with navigation and atmospheric structure data: 1) greenhouse gases and carbon cycle gases, 2) ozone and water vapor, 3) black carbon and aerosols, 4) CFCs, HCFCs, and HFCs, 5) light hydrocarbons and PAN, and 6) sulfur gases and ocean-derived gases
EOL HIPPO Data Archive :: www.eol.ucar.edu/projects/hippo The Earth Observing Laboratory (EOL) HIPPO data archive provides component data, documentation, and information, including:
Photos, imagery, and movies from aircraft-mounted camera with time-synchronized navigation and state parameter data
Publications derived from HIPPO data, meeting agendas, and presentations
Investigator-provided quality-assured individual instrument data files
Supporting data sets (e.g. operational satellite, model output, global observations, etc.)
Ancillary flight information, field catalogs, data quality reports, software, and documentation
Pole-to-pole atmospheric cross-section plots of chemical species
The “HIAPER Pole-to-Pole Observations (HIPPO) of Carbon Cycle and Greenhouse Gases Study” will measure cross sections of atmospheric concentrations approximately pole-to-pole, from the surface to the tropopause, five times during different seasons over a three year period. A comprehensive suite of atmospheric trace gases pertinent to understanding the Carbon Cycle will be measured. The program will provide thefirstcomprehensive, global survey of atmospheric trace gases, covering the full troposphere in all seasons and multiple years.
Carbon Dioxide Instrument The CO2 instrument draws air in through a rear facing inlet, in one of the the HIMIL which we’ll go over and take a look at, there’s one hanging on the bottom of the plane, it’s easy to see. (Learn more...)
HIPPO is a landmark study for many reasons, not the least of which is it is the first time scientists have systematically mapped global distribution of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, covering the full troposphere in all seasons and multiple years.
