Data sets

Data in support of Comprehensive Atmospheric Modeling of Reactive Cyclic Siloxanes and Their Oxidation Products N. Janechek, C. Stanier, and K. Hansen

Short summary
Gas-phase cyclic volatile methyl siloxanes and their oxidation products, which are likely precursors to secondary organic aerosol, were modeled using an atmospheric transport model over North America. Typical concentrations, spatial patterns, seasonal variability, and vertical profiles were quantified. Urban parent compound concentrations were sensitive to transport factors, while rural parent and oxidized product concentrations were sensitive to large-scale seasonal variability in OH.
