ASCOS — Arctic Summer Cloud Ocean Study

The Arctic Summer Cloud Ocean Study (ASCOS) was a scientific expedition to the high Arctic in summer 2008, during the International Polar Year (IPY), which was...

Dual-channel microwave radiometer measurements from the high-Arctic ASCOS expedition 2008

Vertically integrated water vapor (PWV) and cloud liquid water (LWP) was measured using a microwave radiometer, simultaneously observing the microwave...

Marine-Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer from the high-Arctic ASCOS expedition 2008

During the ASCOS expedition the temperatures of the cloud-base, ambient air, and surface were very accurately measured using the Marine-Atmospheric Emitted...

Micrometeorological data from an ice-floe site during the high-Arctic ASCOS expedition 2008

Micrometeorological observations were collected from two masts on an ice floe a few hundred meters from the Icebreaker Oden during ice drift of the ASCOS...

Millimeter cloud radar Doppler moments measurements from the high-Arctic ASCOS expedition 2008

Cloud information data was collected using a ship-based vertically pointing millimeter cloud radar (MMCR), which is a Doppler radar at the Ka-band,...

Multi-sensor cloud microphysics product from the high-Arctic ASCOS expedition 2008

This data set includes retrievals of cloud type, characteristic particle size, and condensed water content for both liquid and ice hydrometeors. These...

S-band radar data from the high-Arctic ASCOS expedition 2008

Cloud and precipitation information data was collected using a ship-based vertically pointing Doppler radar at the S-band, adapted to primarily measure...

Ultraviolet radiation data from the high-Arctic ASCOS expedition 2008

Incoming and outgoing ultraviolet radiation was measured by a semi-portable sensor with a NILU-UV multiband filter-radiometer. This was sometime located at the...

Weather and navigation data from the high-Arctic ASCOS expedition 2008

The Icebreaker Oden's weather station was mostly located on the 7th deck about 27 m above sea level, on top of the bridge. Sensors were distributed over the...

Weather data from WeatherPak station from the high-Arctic ASCOS expedition 2008

The WeatherPak station is an integrated unit mounted approximately mid-ship on the forward railing on the Icebreaker Oden's 7th deck about 27 m above sea...
