Sea ice drift, surface temperature, and barometric pressure from autonomous measurements from buoy 2021C26, deployed during MELTEX 2021


Sea ice drift, surface temperature, and barometric pressure were measured by the Compact Air-Launched Ice Beacon (CALIB) 2021C26 drifting on Arctic sea ice deployed by air-plane drop off during MELTEX 2021. The time series describes the position and additional parameters of the buoy between 29 Jul 2021 and 08 Feb 2022 in sample intervals of 1 hour. The data set has been processed, including the flagging of obvious inconsistencies in position. The position is flagged if the drift velocity exceeds a threshold (Quality flag, position = 1), if the position exceeds extreme values, such as longitude > 360 deg (Quality flag, position = 2), and if the position is exactly 0.0 (Quality flag, position = 4). These quality flag values can be sums of each other.
