Data sets

Spatial and temporal variability of broadband solar irradiance during POLARSTERN cruise PS106/1 Ice Floe Camp (June 4th-16th 2017) C. Barrientos-Velasco, H. Deneke, and A. Macke

Short summary
In the changing Arctic, quantifying the resulting variability of incoming solar radiation is important to better elucidate the net radiative effect of clouds. As part of a multidisciplinary expedition in the central Arctic held in early summer 2017, a novel network of pyranometers was deployed over an ice floe to investigate the spatiotemporal variability of solar radiation under different sky conditions. This study presents the collected data and an analysis of the spatiotemporal variability.
