clap: Continuous Light Absorption Photometer

The Continuous Light Absorption Photometer (CLAP) operates on the same principle as the Particle Soot Absorption Photometer (PSAP), i.e., continuously measuring transmission through a filter substrate as sample air is drawn through it. The absorbing aerosol particles are collected in the filter.

The CLAP is part of the Aerosol Observing System (AOS).
