Arctic Ocean 2016 - Meteorological and Aerosol Data

Creator/Principal investigator(s):

Ian Brooks - University of Leeds

Description:

This dataset contains data collected during the Canadian-Swedish expedition Arctic Ocean 2016. The research cruise took place August through September 2016, using the icebreaker Oden.

For ship data from the cruise, as well as graphics and files describing the route, see https://ecds.se/dataset/meteorological-oceanographic-and-ship-data-from-arctic-ocean-expedition-aug-sept-2016

For descriptions of Work Packages and research conducted during the cruise, see the SWEDARCTIC Arctic Ocean 2016 Expedition Report: http://urn.kb.se/resolve?urn=urn:nbn:se:polar:diva-3475

Additional information on the expedition, including links to publications, is available at http://www.polarforskningsportalen.se/en/arctic/expeditions/arctic-ocean-2016

Work Package: Meteorology, Atmospheric Boundary Layer and Surface Fluxes

The meteorology work package has three distinct objectives:

1) Profiling of the thermodynamic structure of the polar atmosphere from the surface to approximately 25 km to provide information on synoptic structure.

2) Measurement of turbulent surface exchange (momentum, heat, water vapour), t

Description:

Measurements: Wind speed and direction, air temperature, humidity, water vapour concentration, surface temperature, overhead cloud base height, cloud fraction statistics, backscatter profiles from aerosol/cloud droplets, solar and infra red radiation, cloud/fog droplet spectrometry, and aerosol size distributions.

Images: 10 second timelapse thermal images of the ice off port side, 10 second (port/stb) and 60 second (forward) visible images of the surface to the horizon.

Sampling: Fog water droplets, aerosol particles.
