ATom Data

flight tracks map
Flight tracks for the four legs of the Atmospheric Tomography Mission from 2016-2018. Each flight track consists of 11 to 13 flights of the NASA DC-8. On each 10-hour flight, the DC-8 cycled from 500-feet elevation to nearly 40,000 feet, continuously sampling the atmosphere. Map: NOAA

Preliminary Data

These are preliminary data from the Atmospheric Tomography (ATom) mission that have been made available to facilitate scientific assessment. These data have not completed post-mission checks for Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) and final calibrations. By downloading these data, the user agrees that these preliminary data may never be used or published in archival media such as journals or meeting proceedings. Archival publications must use only public release data that have completed QA/QC. Public release of ATom data is anticipated within 12 months after each phase of the ATom project.
