Differential Aerosol Sizing and Hygroscopicity Spectrometer Probe (DASH-SP)

Status

Operated By: 
PI

Schematic of the DASH-SP summarizing the transport path of sampled aerosol.

The DASH-SP will provide rapid measurements of aerosol sub-saturated hygroscopic growth factors aboard the NASA DC-8 during the SEAC4RS field campaign. DASH-SP measurements in the critically important southeast Asian region will afford a valuable opportunity to examine the relationship between aerosol composition and water-uptake properties in order to improve model parameterizations of aerosol-water interactions.
