The data provides atmospheric DMS surface concentrations at Garners Beach, on the Far North Queensland coast (17.82°S, 146.10°E) during October 2016. Accompanying the atmospheric DMS dataset are 1 min averaged particle number concentrations in two size ranges (0.5-2.5 micron & >2.5 micron).
The atmospheric dimethylsulfide (DMS) data was collected using an automated gas chromatograph fitted with a pulsed flame photometric detector (GC-PFPD). This instrumentation was controlled by an auto-sampler programmed to measure atmospheric DMS every 20 minutes. Detailed information about the atmospheric DMS instrumentation and its measurement uncertainty is available from related publication: "Validation and measurement uncertainty of an automated gas chromatograph for marine studies of atmospheric dimethylsulfide" (2015).
Particle number concentrations were collected using a Dylos DC1700 Air Quality Monitor (Dylos Corporation, Riverside CA, USA).
