Notes

  • Variant of QCL-A, with the difference that column 5 is most likely ambient CH4, which was unintentionally logged due to a change (after I think update of the QCL’s TDLWintel software) of the data sequence coming from the QCL.
  • However, since H2O from the QCL raw binaries is not used for fluxes QCL-A can be used instead.

  1. DS, Byte 0, Length 1, Gain 1, Units: Bytes
  2. SC, Byte 1, Length 1, Gain 1, Units: dimensionless
  3. CH4, Bytes 2-5, Length 4, Gain 10000, Units: mixing ratio (ppb)
  4. H2O, Bytes 6-9, Length 4, Gain 1000, Units: mixing ratio (ppb)
  5. N2O, Bytes 10-13, Length 4, Gain 10000, Units: mixing ratio (ppb)

Notes

  • Special case: different column order and N2O, CH4 and cell temperature are amplified, also cell pressure is missing and H2O values are cut-off after two digites after the comma.
