Title: Airborne CH 2O measurements over the North Atlantic during the 1997 NARE campaign: Instrument comparisons and distributions

Abstract

Here, formaldehyde measurements from two independent instruments are compared with photochemical box model calculations. The measurements were made on the NOAA P-3 aircraft as part of the 1997 North Atlantic Regional Experiment (NARE 1997). After examining the possible reasons for the model-measurement discrepancy, we conclude that there are probably one or more additional unknown sources of CH 2O in the North Atlantic troposphere.
