Chemical identification method:
Laser-Induced Fluorescence of OH

Data analysis method:
Inquire with PI

Quantification method:
Applying the direct calibration factor for OH

Calibration method:
Producing known amounts of OH in a discharge flow tube, see Brune et al., J. Atmos. Sci., 1995

Calibration drift estimate:

Uncertainty estimation method:
Total uncertainty based on calibration uncertainties

Known interferences:
Interference around instances of high biogenic activity that is temperature dependent (see Mao et al., ACP, 2012). This is corrected for by chemical zeroing.
