GPS position of SIMBA buoy (FMI02) during 2012/2013


The Snow and Ice Mass Balance Array (SIMBA) is a thermistor string type IMB (Jackson et al., 2013) that measures the environment temperature SIMBA-ET and temperature change (SIMBA-HT) after an identical heating element is applied to each sensor. This SIMBA (FMI02) was deployed in the high Arctic during the Polarstern Arctic cruise (ARK-XXVII/3) on 22, September 2012. The SIMBA thermistor chain is 4.8 m long and equipped with 240 thermistors at 0.02 m spacing. Snow depth and ice thickness were derived manually by investigating the SIMBA_ET vertical temperature profiles. This SIMBA was deployed on 22 Sep 2012 at 15:15 UTC. The initial position was Latitude: 88.81287 N Longitude: 57.53883 E. The initial ice thickness was 1.44 m; Freeboard was 0.21 m and the snow depth was 0.03 m. This dataset provides SIMBA GPS position.
