NODC Accession 0112864 includes site samples, meteorological and physical data collected aboard the LAURENCE M. GOULD during cruises LMG0106 and LMG0205 in the South Pacific Ocean from 2001-08-07 to 2002-09-08. These data include Snow thickness, Freeboard, cloud amount/frequency, Albedo, TRANSMISSIVITY and Ice Depth/Thickness. The instruments used to collect these data include radiometer. These data were collected by Doug Martinson of Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Raymond Smith of University of California-Santa Barbara and Don Perovich of Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory as part of Southern Ocean GLOBEC. The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) submitted these data to NODC on 2013-07-30.

Project #:OG-241-0: Optical Environment of the Western Antarctic Peninsula Region An Analytical Spectral Devices Ice-1 spectroradiometer was used to measure albedos and transmittances. This instrument has an effective spectral range from 380 nm to 860 nm. It is a dual channel instrument with separate detectors to simultaneous measure incident and transmitted irradiance. Fiber optics probes are used to transmit the from the cosine collectors to two highly sensitive CCD detector arrays. Limited daylight and harsh weather constrained the number of optical measurements. In 2001, optical measurements were made on 7 August, 8 August, 11 August, and 18 August. In 2002, optical measurements were made on 25 August, 26 August, 7 September, and 8 September. In 2002 vertical profiles of upwelling irradiance were made at several sites. (from the data cdrom) Related datasets: ice thickness (,, snow pits (,, sea ice (,, ice properties (,
