Dataset associated with "Seasonality and source apportionment of non-methane volatile organic compounds at Boulder Reservoir between 2017 and 2019"
Multiyear observations of 13 non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs) were collected at Boulder Reservoir in the Colorado Northern Front Range Metropolitan Area (NFRMA). We separate abundances of NMVOCs into source contributions using two approaches that have been applied to prior NFRMA datasets. Positive matrix factorization (PMF) analysis identifies five NMVOC factors in winter, spring, and fall that correspond to long-lived and short-lived NMVOCs from regional oil and gas production, traffic, local shorter-lived alkenes, and regional anthropogenic background. In summer, there is an ...
