# Intermittent TCCON observations in Eureka
Est.
Date when NIR observations began
Inst. Type
*Upgraded from 120HR
Detectors
xInGaAs = extended InGaAs (3900cm-1 cut-on frequency)
InGaAs = Standard InGaAs (5600 cm-1 cut-on frequency)
** since Mar 2005
Acq
1 = single-channel acquisition; 2 = dual-channel acquisition
^^: Dual-channel acquisition at Rikubetsu 
has been initiated on Jun. 24 2014. 
^^^:Dual-channel acquisition at Tsukuba has been initiated on Mar. 28 2014. 

Sample (kHz)
Laser Fringe Rate (Bruker call this the "Scan Velocity")
LPF (kHz)
Low Pass Filter cutoff frequency
***since Jul 2008
AP
Number of coincident Aircraft Profiles
>> = The Eureka overpass was on the InSb detector
<< = The Ascension Island overpass was when the FTS was in Jena
vv = The 5 Tsukuba overpasses occured with the old (120HR) FTS was in place
Pins
Pressure Inside FTS (0= evacuated; 1= ambient pressure)
++ = Measuring with ambient pressure since October 2009. Changing out the oil vacuum pumps.
Scan Mode
DC = using Keppel-Aleks et al. (2007) solar intensity variation correction
AC = not using the above correction
F&R = forward and reverse scanning
