This dataset contains corrected observations (motion and translational movement) from a WindCube V2 Lidar (Leosphere). The instrument was mounted on the NATO Research Vessel Alliance during Iceland Greenland Seas Project (IGP) campaign in February–March 2018.

The Iceland Greenland seas Project (IGP) was an international project involving the UK, US a Norwegian research communities. The UK component was funded by NERC, under the Atmospheric Forcing of the Iceland Sea (AFIS) project (NE/N009754/1).
