Sea spray data from the Surface Ocean Aerosol Production (SOAP) study
The Surface Ocean Aerosol Production (SOAP) voyage examined air-sea interactions over the productive waters of the Chatham Rise, east of New Zealand on board the RV Tangaroa (New Zealand National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, Wellington) from February 12 to March 7, 2012.
23 seawater samples were collected throughout the voyage for the purpose of generating nascent SSA. The volatility and hygroscopicity of nascent SSA (Sea Spray Aerosol) were determined with a volatility and hygroscopicity tandem differential mobility analyser (VH-TDMA). The VH-TDMA was also used to calculate the organic volume fraction.
Filters were collected for compositional analysis using transmission Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) and Ion Beam analysis (IBA).
