AQMET Air quality and meteorological measurements measured measured during DANCE cruise HRS1414 aboard the R/V Hugh R. Sharp from July to August 2014 on the offshore Mid-Atlantic Bight and northern South-Atlantic Bight between latitudes 31.60°N and 38.89°N, and longitudes 71.09°W and 75.16°W.

Air quality and meteorological measurements were collected using commercial instrumentation. The data were averaged to 1 minute and spatial data were linearly interpolated to match the continuous 1 minute data.

Averages and data interpolation was done using MATLAB. Data during known periods of interference such as routine maintenance are reported as NaN. The NOx channel of the Thermo 42C failed during the campaign. NOx can be calculated using the NO measurement from the Thermo 42C and the NO2 measurement from the Aerodyne CAPS.

Complete sampling procedures and methods are found in Martins et al. 2016.
