Particulate Mass Filter Collection (NEON-PMFC)

This product contains the quality-controlled, native sampling resolution data from NEON's particulate mass sampling protocol. Samples are collected by an automated assembly that pulls air through a quartz microfiber filter with a porosity of 10 micrometers, to collect PM10. Filters are weighed at high precision pre- and post-deployment to determine dust deposition mass. In addition to determining mass concentration of PM10, filters from the particulate mass analyzers will be archived in laboratory storage. Subsamples of the filters will be available to science community upon request to enable the assessment of chemical and nutrient inputs in the region.
