Project Location: 
Augustine Volcano, Anchorage, Alaska
Project Description: 

A Lockheed L-188 Electra was made available to interested scientists for a few days prior to and following the Arctic Ice Dynamics Joint Experiment (AIDJEX) in Point Barrow, Alaska, which was specially equipped for cloud physics and atmospheric chemical research. It had a sampling system for the collection of particles consisting of a 20 x 25 cm Hi-Volume filter assembly with a flow rate of approximately 15 ma/min with Whatman 541 filter paper as the collection substrate for the samples. Additional particle samples were collected with a cascade impactor.
