A short-history of the development and design of the AFGLEpsilon Labs balloon-borne aerosol particle spectrometer is presented. Measurement results for a majority of the flights conducted with this instrument are summarized and presented in a compatible graphic format to facilitate intercomparison. An improved method of computing air flow and a means of correcting erroneous air flow data is described which should permit the re-evaluation and corrections of early flight data. Application of the foregoing corrective methods to the most recent flight data is detailed. Some pecularities in this high resolution data are described and a tentative explanation is proposed.
