The NUANCE-SPS campaigns, orchestrated by the Institute of Astronomy, Geophysics and Atmospheric Sciences of the University of São Paulo (IAG-USP) and carried out over the São Paulo Metropolitan Area (SPMA) between 2011 and 2015, aimed to improve the current knowledge of the chemistry and transport processes of the pollutants emitted in the SPMA and in other areas of the state of São Paulo, in Brazil. During the most recent NUANCE-SPS campaign, performed in 2014, an extensive set of measurements of aerosol properties were obtained at 15 m above ground level, on the top of the main IAG-USP building (23.559°S, 46.733°W; hereafter referred to as the IAGU site), which is approximately 45 km from the Atlantic Ocean.
