abstract Arctic Ocean Experiment 2001 AOE-2001 was an icebreaker based field experiment with a target on the formation of low clouds in the central Arctic summer during July and August 2001. A main portion of the 2-moth experiment was a 3-week ice drift from 89 to 88 degN. Main components of the meteorology part of the experiment were surface-based remote- sensing observations, general meteorology observations (weather staion and soundings) and boundary-layer observations on the ice. For a complete review of the experiment and a full list of instruments, see Tjernstrým et al. 2004 (The summertime Arctic atmosphere: Meteorological measurements during the Arctic Ocean Experiment (AOE-2001) in Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, 85, 1305 - 1321, and its on-line supplement: Experimental equipment: A supplement to The summertime Arctic atmosphere: Meteorological measurements during the Arctic Ocean Experiment (AOE-2001)).

title Instant cloud-top observations from S-band cloud radar operating in two modes, a low-range high-resolution and a high-range low-resolution mode, respectively, obtained during AOE-2001. The presented data is the highest cloud top altitude observed.
