This dataset contains all the measurements used for the analysis of the respective publication. More details on the measurement setup etc. can be found in there.

The data contains of three subfolders, one including the AIDA data, one the INKA and one the mul-NIPI data. Each folder contains one txt file for each experiment of the measurement campaign (see Table 2 in the publication). The name of the txt file represents the sample and the aerosolisation technique used (in case of the AIDA and INKA data).

Below we give a short explanation on the data in each folder:

AIDA:

Each data file consists of 6 columns: temperature T ([T]=K), the uncertainty of T deltaT, the surface active site density nS ([ns]=m-2), the uncertainty of ns deltanS, the ice nucleation active site density per mass of sea salt nm ([nm]=g-1), the uncertainty of nm deltanm. The AIDA ns data were corrected for the background ice nucleation mode observed in the reference experiments with purely inorganic Sigma-Aldrich sea salt solution droplets (see Sect. 2.4 in the manuscript).

There was no signal above background for the following experiments (and therefore no data file exists): SM100a AEGOR, SM10 AEGOR, SML8 AEGOR.

INKA:

Each data file consists of 2 columns: temperature T ([T]=°C), the surface active site density ns ([ns]=m-2).

There was no signal for the following experiments (and therefore no data file exists): Sigma sea salt nebuliser, SM100a AEGOR, SML8 AEGOR.

NIPI:

Data files consist at least of two columns (T and FF) and additional of the following (depending on the dataset): temperature T ([T]=°C), concentration of ice nucleation particles INP ([INP]=L-1), frozen fraction FF, the ice nucleation active site density per mass of sea salt nm ([nm]=g-1), the freezing point depression corrected temperature Corrected T ([Corrected T]=°C), the upper limit of the ice nucleation active site density per mass of sea salt nm ([nm]=g-1), the lower limit of the ice nucleation active site density per mass of sea salt nm ([nm]=g-1).
