AOP
Aerosol Optical Properties

The Aerosol Optical Properties (AOP) is a suite consisting of three instruments: a cavity ringdown (CRD) aerosol extinction spectrometer, a photoacoustic absorption spectrometer (PAS), and an ultra-high sensitivity aerosol size spectrometer (UHSAS). This suite measures aerosol absorption and extinction, and can also characterize black carbon optics. AOP was designed to provide quick and accurate measurements of aerosols with stability while aboard an aircraft.
