Dataset Title IAOOS- Real time atmospheric and oceanic observations from a buoy network deployed in the Arctic
Dataset Purpose
Dataset Abstract IAOOS-France is coordinated by UPMC (L'OCEAN/LATMOS) and its objective is to install multi-disciplinary autonomous systems on a network of buoys in central Arctic, collecting in real time observations of the ocean, sea ice, snow and atmosphere in the Arctic.
Acquisition Methodology The platform is equipped with CTD vertical profilers, ice mass balance, temperature and pressure sensors, micro-lidars and optical depth sensors. Vertical cloud profilers are produced several times per day by the micro-lidars. 6 platforms to be deployed every year following the first deployment of 15 platforms, making a total of 40. All the systems on each buoys should operate during 2 years with satellite transfer data. The deployment will start in spring 2014 with two buoys totally overseen by public organisms (DT INSU, LATMOS, LOCEAN). Then all the others buoys will be developed under contract with two first units for autumn 2014.

Caption IAOOS microlidar quicklook
Description IAOOS data from 20th to 27th September 2013 obtained with and updated version of the micro-lidar. This quicklook highlights the weakness of the system for daytime operation due to the very important background signal (∝ L(λ)) several orders of magnitude higher than night time.
