Atmospheric Boundary Layer Measurements by Eddy Covariance, Wind Lidar, Radiometer and Tethered Balloon (Project acronym: Boundary Layer)

At the AWIPEV research base in Ny-Alesund, several instruments are deployed for the monitoring of atmospheric boundary layer processes. A commercial wind lidar is continuously measuring the 3-dimensional wind profile up to an altitude of about 1500m, while a radiometer is monitoring profiles of temperature and humidity in the same altitude range.

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

Summary

At the AWIPEV research base in Ny-Alesund, several instruments are deployed for the monitoring of atmospheric boundary layer processes. A commercial wind lidar is continuously measuring the 3-dimensional wind profile up to an altitude of about 1500m, while a radiometer is monitoring profiles of temperature and humidity in the same altitude range. Eddy covariance measurements are performed in the close vicinity of Ny-Alesund, allowing the detection of momentum and fluxes in the Arctic boundary layer. On campaign-basis, contemporaneous measurements of up to 12 meteorological sondes installed on a tethered balloon system provide profiles of humidity, temperature, pressure, and wind from ground to about 2 km.
