PALMS (Particle Analysis by Laser Mass Spectrometry), a laser ion mass spectrometer run by the National Oceanic and Atmospherics Association's (NOAA's) Meteorological Chemistry Group, makes in-situ measurements of the chemical composition of individual aerosol particles. PALMS has a lab version and a flight version, which is carried on the nose of an aircraft. The PALMS Website gives spectral data from the Spring 1998 flight mission and from 1993 measurements from Idaho Hill, Colorado, 1995 measurements from Cape Grim, Tasmania, and a link to a data page for the Atlanta, Georgia station. Throughout the site's data pages are links to other universities and other institutions using PALMS or involved in aerosol spectrometry research. A list of publications related to PALMS is also provided.
