SPECIFICATIONS
Facility TypeDeployable
LocationAntarctica: South Pole (90 S); Dome C (75 S, 123 E; 3280 m), Arctic: Eureka (80 N, 85 W)
VariablesAtmospheric radiance Derived Variables: 1) evaluating line-by-line radiative transport codes, 2) detecting/quantifying cloud effects on ground-based measurements of infrared spectral radiance, 3) calculating vertical atmospheric profiles of temperature and water vapor and the detection of trace gases
Archive Data AvailabilityContact PI for data from South Pole, Dome C, and Eureka, Canada.
