This page provides access to descriptions of the DUCK94 experiments, summaries of the instruments used and data collected, and access to some online DUCK94 data.

Summary of Collected Data

A summary of the instruments and of the data collected is available in two formats, Microsoft EXCEL spreadsheet (*.xls) and Adobe PDF (*.pdf). For a free PDF reader, link to Adobe Acrobat Reader. (Note: Some of the text in the pdf files is very small, we suggest printing them). The files are arranged according to the month and include information on all the experiments. The files are:

    August  DUCK94_AugData.PDF (115K) DUCK94_AugData.xls (413K)
    October  DUCK94_OctData.PDF (205K) DUCK94_OctData.xls (758K)
    Others  DUCK94_OtherData.PDF (19K) DUCK94_OtherData.xls (83K)

Experiment Descriptions

The following is a list of the experiments including the time period when they were conducted. The links lead to descriptions of the experiments which were prepared before the experiment was completed. Additional links lead to online data if its available. Readers interested in particular data are encouraged to contact the lead PI. See: Addresses
