ASCOS cloud base heights and cloud fractions on Oden
Entry ID: SMHI_IPY_ASCOS-Oden-cldbas-01_1.0

Abstract: ASCOS was an interdisciplinary expedition to the central Arctic on the icebreaker Oden from 1 August to 9 September 2008. The expedition focused on processes relating to cloud formation in the summer Arctic and included observations of marine biology and chemistry, atmospheric chemistry, physical oceanography, aerosol chemistry and physics, and meteorology. The data in this dataset include cloud base heights and cloud fractions - and in the case of thick fog - vertical visibility from a celiometer on Odens 7th deck (bridge roof).
