Data sets

Airborne and dropsonde measurements in MCAOs during STABLE in March 2013 Christof Lüpkes, Jörg Hartmann, Amelie U. Schmitt, Gerit Birnbaum, Timo Vihma, and Janosch Michaelis

Short summary
A major goal of the Springtime Atmospheric Boundary Layer Experiment (STABLE) aircraft campaign was to observe atmospheric conditions during marine cold-air outbreaks (MCAOs) originating from the sea-ice-covered Arctic ocean. Quality-controlled measurements of several meteorological variables collected during 15 vertical aircraft profiles and by 22 dropsondes are presented. The comprehensive data set may be used for validating model results to improve the understanding of future trends in MCAOs.
