  author={Gerard Capes and Jennifer G. Murphy and C E Reeves and J B McQuaid and Jacqueline F. Hamilton and J Richard Hopkins and Jonathan Crosier and Paul Ieuan Williams and Hugh Coe},
This paper presents measurements of organic aerosols above subtropical West Africa during the wet season using data from the UK Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM) aircraft. Measurements of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOC) at low altitudes over these subtropical forests were made during the African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analysis (AMMA) field experiment during July and August 2006 mainly above Benin, Nigeria and Niger. Data from an Aerodyne Quadrupole Aerosol Mass… CONTINUE READING
