ACE-FTS Climatology - Version 3.5
ACE-FTS version 3.5 (February 2004 to February 2013) was used to create a quality-controlled climatology for the following 21 species: C2H2, C2H6, CCl2F2, CCl3F, CH3OH, CH4, ClONO2, CO, H2CO, H2O, HCl, HCN, HCOOH, HF, HNO3, N2O, N2O5, NO, NO2, O3, and OCS. A climatology for temperature was also created.
The climatological fields are provided on a one- and three-month basis (DJF, MAM, JJA, SON), at 5 degree latitude and equivalent latitude spacing, and on 43 pressure surfaces. Please consult the associated reference and the data set 'ReadMe' file for further information.

In any publications using ACE data, such as this climatology, it is important to acknowledge the Canadian Space Agency for the funding of the SCISAT satellite. Any text that recognizes the Canadian Space Agency as funding the ACE Mission is permitted, but we have provided a sample to use that meets this requirement. This simple statement has been used in many publications with ACE data.
