[ Get Data ]

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. An optical bubble spectrometer made measurements within the near surface waters of an open lead on 10 days during the ASCOS campaign. 20 channels spanning 30-1140um.
