Arctic Ice Dynamics Joint Experiment

Project Description
During the summer of 1975 AIDJEX maintained four manned camps on
ice floes in the Arctic Ocean. Instrumentation located at those
camps, or deployed on floating data buoys, recorded surface and
geostrophic winds, ocean current velocity at 2 and 30 meter
depths, and camp (ice floe) position. Data are archived as daily
average values for each camp, as well as ice velocity and
smoothed positions. Surface pressure and geostrophic wind data
are also available at 6-hourly intervals. Data acquired during
the AIDJEX main experiment have been validated, for the most
part, by the principal investigators and analysts. Data are
available on diskette or via ftp.
