Meteorological and atmospheric dust data from Kangerlussuaq, southwest Greenland, 2017-2019

This dataset contains meteorological and atmospheric dust concentration, deposition and particle-size data from Kangerlussuaq, southwest Greenland, 2017-2019. Meteorological and dust concentration data measured at two locations and dust deposition data measured at 5 locations on an east to west transect between 1.8 and 37.4 km from the 2017 Greenland Ice Sheet western margin.

The work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council (grant NE/P011578/1)

Provenance & quality

Dust concentration measured using TSI DustTrak DRX Environmental Monitor 8543-M at 5 minute intervals. Wind speed/direction measured using RM Young 5013 sensor at 5 minute intervals. Temperature/humidity data measured using Omega OMYL-RH20 at 10 minute intervals. Raw data provided.

Dust deposition data measured using Hall Deposition Traps emptied at end of each season. Minerogenic fraction isolated by ashing at 500 deg.C. Dust particle size analysis conducted on minerogenic fraction using Beckman Coulter LS 230 laser sizer.
