Cloud camera all sky pictures gathered during MARIA S. MERIAN cruise MSM114/2 (ARC)


The ship campaign MSM114/2 (ARC) with the German research vessel Maria S. Merian took place from 22 January to 23 February, 2023. The campaign started in Mindelo, Cape Verde, and ended in Punta Arenas, Chile. During the campaign, the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) was completely crossed three times at an almost constant longitude of 23˚W yielding three profiles of the ITCZ. Afterwards, a storm was passed in the Roaring Forties, in the South Atlantic. Here, we present all sky images from the cloud camera as part of a series of standardised data sets of the atmospheric and oceanographic observations gathered during the ARC campaign.

Here, we show the first image of each hour taken by the all sky cloud camera during the MSM114/2 (ARC) ship campaign. The name of each image corresponds to the time stamp (myymmddHHMMSSsss.jpg).
