The physical and chemical climatology of high elevation (>1500 m) spruce4ir
forests in the southern Appalachian mountains was studied by establishing a
weather and atmospheric chemical observatory at Mt Mitchell State Park in
North Carolina (35 44' 05" N, 82 17' 15"W). Data collected during the summer
and autumn (May-October) of 1986, 1987, and 1988 are reported. All measure-
ments were made on or near a 16.5 m walk-up tower extending 10 m above the
forest canopy on Mt Gibbes (2006 m msl), which is located approximately 2 km
SW of Mt Mitchell. The tower was equipped with standard meteorological in-
strumentation, a passive cloud water collector, and gas pollutant sensors for 03,
