In the summer of 2015, a field campaign was conducted in Riverside, CA with 13 UPods (made by the Hannigan group at the University of Colorado, Boulder). These are sensor platforms that (in this case) measured ambient ozone for about three months from July to October. Data is in concentration, ppb.These data provide support for a manuscript out for publication. This data set is has been filtered for various values, and is the result of applying a linear regression between the sensor signal (in volts), and reference stations operated by South Coast Air Quality Management. The codes required to bring the data from the raw files to this finished file are not included. These files include a README for more information, two forms (.mat and .csv) of the dataset, three codes constructed in MATLAB that will enable the user to re-create plots that are used in the manuscript, reference data, and supporting files. NOTES: the code boxplot_pwhisker was not created by me, it belongs to Levi Golston https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/profile/authors/4592117-levi-golston. Also, the reference data is from South Coast Air Quality Monitoring district (for NO, NO2, and O3). This data is preliminary and has not undergone typical quality assurance and quality control methods they use. They also did not operate the instrument that collected the CO2 data.
