Aerosol - cloud condensation nuclei measurements at 60 m height in Cabauw tower

This dataset contains cloud condensation nuclei counts (expressed in counts/cm3) and the particle size distribution (top of bins are 0.75, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, up to 10 microns), expressed in counts/s for a continuous repetition of a set of saturation levels. Typical operational parameters are 5 saturation settings, with 5 until 10 minutes settle time between settings. The CCN counter (Droplet Measurement Technologies) is operated in the basement of the Cabauw tower, with an inlet pipe bolted to the tower and has the inlet opening at 60 meters height
