Group: Summary

   CEAREX was a multi-platform field program conducted in the Norwegian Seas and 
   Greenland north to Svalbard from September 1988 through May 1989. Canada, 
   Denmark, France, Norway and the United States participated in the experiment. 
   Primary data from CEAREX are available on FTP in ASCII format along with some 
   data from the Marginal Ice Zone Experiment (MIZEX) and the Eurasian Basin 
   Experiment (EUBEX).

   Meteorology data from CEAREX and the MIZEX (1983, 1984, 1987) include 
   near-surface time series and rawinsonde (upper-air sounding) profiles of wind, 
   pressure, temperature, and humidity collected on ship platforms and ice floe 
   stations. A collection of hydrography data include CTD, STD, and bottle data  
   from a ship and two operations camps. Hydrography data also include data from 
   the MIZEX, the EUBEX, NODC archives, and a merged set of data from five other 
   cruises. Sea ice data consist of compressive stress measurements made in a 
   multi-year floe, stress sensor data for time series of stress invariants,  and 
   ice accelerometer data for movements associated with the deformation of 
   multi-year ice floes. Noise data consist of acoustic measurements from a 
   variety of hydrophone and geophone arrays, and ambient noise observations from 
   a ship using omni-directional hydrophones tethered beneath the ice cover. 
   Biophysical data include bottle sample, zooplankton sampling, and  
   bioluminescence data. Bathymetry data consist of gridded trackline data 
   collected from the two operations camps, and digital bottom bathymetry and 
   continental topography data for the Fram Strait region and a portion of the 
   Arctic Ocean. Sample position data consist of hourly listings of position and  
   velocity for both manned stations and unmanned drifting buoys. Data are 
   available via FTP.
