CAPRICORN 2016 Field campaign: surface meteorological data and turbulent fluxes collected from the RV Investigator by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the Indian and South Pacific Oceans from 2016-03-14 to 2016-04-15 (NCEI Accession 0170257)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

The data contained within this file covers about 40 days of surface meteorological data and turbulent fluxes at sea south of Tasmania from 14 March to 16 April 2016. This is part of the CAPRICORN (Clouds, Aerosols, Precipitation, Radiation, and Atmospheric Composition over the Southern Ocean) 2016 project. The data come from two sources, the NOAA ESRL PSD's flux system and the instruments permanently installed on the RV Investigator. NOAA's flux system is an instrument package that makes direct measurements of the exchange or flux of heat, water, and momentum between the atmosphere and the ocean. The system also measures meteorological variables such as sea surface temperature, wind speed, air temperature, humidity. Together, this information can be used to estimate how the ocean and atmosphere exchange heat in weather and climate models. The dataset contains both direct measurement and model outputs (COARE 3.5). The averaging period is 10 minutes. Data have been corrected for known measurement issues when possible and quality control flags are included to reject bad data due to ship contamination or maneuvering.
