Data for "Measuring Light Absorption by Freshly Emitted Organic Aerosols: Optical Artifacts in Traditional Solvent Extraction-Based Methods"
datasetposted on 22.07.2019 by Nishit Shetty
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The dataset was used to report optical artifacts in traditional solvent extraction based photometry techniques. Biomass fuels from different sources were combusted and the absorption coefficients obtained using solvent-extraction based techniques were compared to their particle-phase counterparts. Trends in the absorption coefficient bias were explored with (1) OC/TC ratios and (2) single scattering albedo (SSA). A linear trend with the OC/TC ratio and SSA was also observed for the biomass burning samples that were investigated. Obtained results and experimental methodology are detailed in the manuscript linked with this dataset.
