North Pole Environmental Observatory PMEL/CRREL 2000-2003 Ice Temperature and Mass Balance Buoy DataEntry ID: ARCSS128
Abstract: This data set contains ice temperature and mass balance data from drifting ice buoys near the North Pole in the Central Basin of the Arctic Ocean. Buoys were deployed each April by the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL) and the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL). The buoys drifted with the ice pack, and data were collected via satellite transmissions. Ice ... temperature data were collected year around during 2000-2003, at 10 cm depth intervals twice daily, every twelve hours. The North Pole Environmental Observatory (NPEO) is a year-round, automated scientific observatory, deploying various instruments each April in order to learn how the world's northernmost sea helps regulate global climate. It consists of a set of unmanned scientific platforms that record oceanographic, cryospheric, and atmospheric data throughout the year. More information about the project is available at the project Web site, North Pole Environmental Observatory (http://psc.apl.washington.edu/northpole/). Data are in tab-delimited ASCII text format. Data are distributed as a 170 KB compressed file available via FTP.

Quality Details by type of expenditures included in each category can vary among
jurisdictions and among years. Take careful note of the footnotes attached to
each table. Expenditures are reported in current dollars. The data are
presented by source of funding.
... The reporting of information on forest management expenditures
originated in 1984 with a report produced as a cooperative effort between the
Canadian Forest Service (CFS) and the Canadian Pulp and Paper Association
(CPPA). Surveys of government expenditures for the years 1977 to 1989 were
conducted by the Great Lakes Forestry Centre. Information on government
expenditures has been collected through the annual NFDP survey since 1990.
