Metadata
abstract The Arctic Summer Cloud-Ocean Study (ASCOS) made remote sensor and in-situ measurements of the clouds and boundary-layer structure in the high Arctic near 87 deg N during the August and early September, 2008. The purposes of these measurements were to describe the macro- and microphysical structure of the clouds, the boundary-layer structure and processes, and their interaction with each other and the surface energy budget. The NOAA/ESRL phased-array 449 MHz wind profiler was deployed on the Swedish iceabreaker Oden, and profiles of winds, backscatter, and radial velocity between 144 m and 8081m altitude are obtained. Half-hourly average consensus wind and backscatter profiles from the Low Mode (Mode 1; 144 m 4028 m with 30 m resolution) are given in this data set. The data will be used in conjunction with the other remote sensing and in-situ data from ASCOS to provide the desired understanding of the key physical processes in the clouds and boundary-layer during this time of year over the Arctic pack ice.
