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...

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...

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...

Ozone soundings from the high-Arctic ASCOS expedition 2008

Profiles of ozone concentration were measured by a Vaisala add-on ozone sonde, for a few of the radiosoundings launched from the helipad of the Icebreaker Oden.

Radioactivity soundings from the high-Arctic ASCOS expedition 2008

Profiles of radioactivity were measured by a Vaisala add-on radioactivity sonde for a few of the radiosoundings, measuring Geiger–Müller tube count rates...

Radiometer data from the high-Arctic ASCOS expedition 2008

High resolution (in time and space) vertical profiles of temperature were obtained from a 60GHz scanning microwave radiometer. The radiometer measures the...

Radiosoundings from the high-Arctic ASCOS expedition 2008

Radiosoundings were launched every six hours (00, 06, 12 & 18UTC), and additionally before each helicopter flight (if not at one of the normal times), using...

Tethersonde mean meteorology from the high-Arctic ASCOS expedition 2008

In-situ boundary-layer meteorological observations were made from the ice using sensors hanging under a tethered balloon which was quasi-continuously winched...

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...
