Swan, Hilton. (2018) Data from: Database of surface level atmospheric dimethylsulfide (DMS) collected for the project "The Great Barrier Reef as a significant source of climatically relevant aerosol particles". Southern Cross University. https://dx.doi.org/10.25918/5c772187f39b6
The data provided here consists of surface level atmospheric DMS measurements collected at Heron Island on the southern Great Barrier Reef (23.44°S, 151.91°E) in January-February 2018. This data has resulted from a series of campaigns conducted on the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) to examine the significance of the GBR as a source of new aerosol particles. Accompanying the atmospheric DMS data set are one minute averaged particle number concentrations for the size range fractions 0.5 - 2.5 micron and >2.5 micron collected using a Dylos DC1700 air quality monitor. Surface level solar irradiance (300 -1100 nm) is also provided with the data collected in Jan-Feb 2018 at Heron Island.
