Microwave brightness temperature measurements during the HALO-AC3 Arctic airborne campaign in early spring 2022 out of Svalbard


The data set contains measurements performed by the passive radiometer Humidity And Temperature PROfiler (HATPRO; Rose et al., 2005) operated on board the Polar 5 research aircraft during 13 flights of the HALO-AC3 airborne campaign, carried out in early spring 2022 northwest of Svalbard (Norway). The measurement campaign is embedded in the Transregional Collaborative Research Centre TR 172 (ArctiC Amplification: Climate Relevant Atmospheric and SurfaCe Processes, and Feedback Mechanisms (AC)3. The published data set consists of brightness temperature measurements at the nadir view with respect to the aircraft's fuselage at seven frequencies in the 22.24 GHz water vapor absorption band and seven at the 60 GHz oxygen absorption complex. It should be considered that the brightness temperatures have not been corrected for aircraft attitude. The data set has been quality-checked and is available separately in NetCDF format for each flight.
