Abstract

This dataset contains meteorological data, including air temperature, near-surface air temperature profiles, relative humidity, surface temperature, near-surface wind speed profiles, shortwave and longwave radiation components, wind speed and wind direction measured at a station on the ice floe during the joint Arctic Climate Across Scales (ACAS) and Microbiology-Ocean-Cloud Coupling in the High Arctic (MOCCHA) projects - both part of the Arctic Ocean 2018 (AO2018) expedition to the High Arctic.

AO2018 took place in the Arctic from 1 August until 21 September 2018. These measurements were used to complement a suite of other observations taken during the expedition. Those of the UK contribution, as well as selected other data, are available within the associated data collection in the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA) archives. Other cruise data may be available in the Bolin Centre for Climate Research MOCCHA/AO2018 holdings.

These data were prepared for archiving as NetCDF data at the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA) by Jutta Vüllers, University of Leeds.

The UK participation of MOCCHA was funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC, grant: NE/R009686/1) and involved instrumentation from the Atmospheric Measurement Facility of the UK's National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS AMF).
