Water Vapor Concentration from the MAP/WINE Experiment at Volgograd, USSR and Heiss Island (Arctic Ocean)Entry ID: MAPDA-WV003
Abstract: This data set contains profiles of water vapor concentration obtained by
rocket-based techniques recorded at Volgograd, USSR and Heiss Island (Arctic
Ocean). The measurements were carried out under the MAP/WINE Project.
Culonometrical techniques were mounted on the parachuting payloads and data was
obtained for the height interval 10-60 km. There are four profiles for the days
of the MAP/WINE ... calendar when rocket salvoes were made. Height resolution of
profiles is 5 km.
The MAP/WINE (Middle Atmosphere Program/Winter in Northern Europe) was one of
the MAP projects scheduled for Fall-Winter 1983-1984. The aim was to coordinate
observational studies of the high-latitude European middle atmosphere in
winter, leading to an improved understanding of the winter variability
structure, motions, and composition.
