Arctic Sea State 2015 Field Campaign, Version 1

The U.S. Office of Naval Research (ONR) Sea State Departmental Research Initiative (DRI) field campaign was conducted during autumn of 2015 in the Beaufort Sea in order to better understand how waves and ice interact as Arctic ice advances in late autumn. Data collection took place under four sampling modes: wave experiments, ice stations, flux stations, and ship surveys. This data set provides curated data from this field campaign in NetCDF data files.

This is the most recent version of these data.
