    The quality controlled radiation measurements contribute to the Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN). Climate warming is manifested in the Ny-Ålesund radiation measurements e.g. looking at the albedo, the reflectivity of the surface which allows to tell if the the ground is covered by snow. the combination of observations in the Svalbard region the interpretation of Svalbard observations with regard to the broader Arctic The expanded approach includes hind-cast studies of available local and regional observations of meteorology, clouds, and radiation fluxes to detect trends and to investigate possible driving forces and feedbacks.

The observations show that the maximum AOD was from May at all sites and varies from to , and the corresponding Ångstrøm exponent was relatively large. Lidar measurements from Minsk, ALOMAR (Arctic Lidar Observatory for Middle Atmosphere Research at Andenes) and Ny-Ålesund show that the aerosol layer was below 3 km at all sites.

    While 6 hourly synoptic observations in Ny-Ålesund by the Norwegian Meteorological Institute reach back to (Førland et al., ), the meteorological data presented here cover a shorter time period, but their high temporal resolution will be of value for atmospheric process studies on shorter time scales. Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago to the east of Greenland in the Arctic Ocean, is home to one of the northernmost settlements in the world: Ny-Ålesund. The town itself is essentially the “largest laboratory for modern Arctic research” – consisting of labs and stations operated by eleven countries, it brings together researchers from.

Get this from a library. Radiation measurements and synoptic observations at Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard = Strahlungsmessungen und synoptische Beobachtungen in Ny-Ålesund, Spitzbergen. [Heike Kupfer; Andreas Herber; Gert König-Langlo]. At Ny-Ålesund (° N), Svalbard, surface radiation measurements of up- and downward short- and longwave radiation are operated since August in the frame of the Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN), complemented with surface and upper air meteorology since August The long-term observations are the base for a climatological presentation of the surface radiation Cited by: The BEAR mast has been tested with success during ten days in April-May at Ny Alesund, in the Svalbard archipelago (Norway) showing that meteorological data were close to measurements at the same level of the Italian Climate Change Tower (CCT) from the ISAC-CNR.

An inclined lidar with vertical resolution of m was used for detailed boundary layer studies and to link observations at Zeppelin Mountain ( m) and Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard. We report on the observation of aerosol layers directly above the Kongsfjord. On 29 Aprila layer of enhanced backscatter was observed in the lowest 25 m above the open water surface.

Recently, comprehensive cloud and radiation observations were performed during the ship- and airborne-based Physical Feedbacks of Arctic Boundary Layer, Sea Ice, Cloud and Aerosol (PASCAL) and Arctic Cloud Observations Using Airborne Measurements during Polar Day (ACLOUD) campaigns (Wendisch et al.

), which took place in May/June in. Although ground-based observations by re-mote sensing are limited to point measurements, they have the advantage of obtaining extended time series of vertically resolved cloud properties.

Here, we present a year data record of cloud base height measured by ceilometer at the Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard. Observations acquired from three-wavelength (, and nm) all-sky imagers (ASIs) at Yellow River Station (YRS) in Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard, are used to examine the synoptic distribution of dayside aurora.

Abstract. Clouds are a key factor for the Arctic amplification of global warming, but their actual appearance and distribution are still afflicted. The Zeppelin Observatory has several air inlets, and also meteorological instruments, radiation instruments and other samplers mounted on the roof.

The building itself consists of several rooms, where the users keep their instruments. One room, «the campaign-room», is reserved for project-based measurement campaigns. Radiation measurements at both eddy-covariance sites were made with a CNR4Kipp and Zonen four com-ponent net radiometer (Ny-Ålesund EC site) and a NR01 Hukseflux four component net radiometer (Bayelva EC site).

The radiation measurements and all other meteoro-logical parameters (temperature, wind etc.) were sam-pled with 2s time interval. spheric observation data from the Arctic region. At the Arctic site Ny-Ålesund ( N, E), the Al-fred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) operates surface radiation measurements as part of the Base-line Surface Radiation Network (BSRN) since August Collocated meteorological surface observations were initi.

[1] An aerosol black carbon (BC) data set from ongoing measurements at Zeppelin station ( m asl), near Ny‐Ålesund (10 m asl), Svalbard is reported for the period – Annual average and median BC concentrations were 39 and 27 ng m −3, respectively, while monthly averages ranged from a maximum ∼80 ng m −3 in February/March to a minimum 0–10 ng m −3 from June to.

[11] The exact synoptic observation time used in Switzerland is 30 to 40 min earlier than the official synoptic time, e.g., from to UTC for the UTC observation.

Therefore observations were compared with an APCADA estimated partial cloud amount based on 10‐min averages of LDR, temperature, and humidity from to UTC.

The WRF Model, version (Skamarock et al. ), is used in this study, with three one-way nested domains at 9- 3- and 1-km horizontal grid spacing and no less than 20 grid cells between each boundary, including the relaxation zone of 4 domains approximately follow earlier studies of the Svalbard region by Kilpeläinen et al.

(, ). An inclined lidar with vertical resolution of m was used for detailed boundary layer studies and to link observations at Zeppelin Mountain ( m) and Ny-?lesund, Svalbard. We report on the observation of aerosol layers directly above the Kongsfjord.A high frequency in warm days is observed at Svalbard Airport from to with a negative trend in cold nights (Bednorz, ; Bednorz and Kolendowicz, ; Tomczyk and Bednorz, ).

Ny‐Ålesund (°N, °E), which is located on the west coast of Svalbard (Spitsbergen), is one of the northernmost archipelagos in the Arctic.Size-segregated particle samples were collected in the Arctic (Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard) in April both at ground level and in the free atmosphere exploiting a tethered balloon equipped also with an optical particle counter (OPC) and meteorological sensors.

Individual particle properties were investigated by scanning electron microscopy coupled with energy dispersive microanalysis (SEM-EDS).
