The data were collected from instruments attached on the tethered balloon system (TBS), operated at the ARM Oliktok Point site on the North Slope of Alaska during ICARUS, 2017.

The instruments include two printed optical particle spectrometers, one condensation particle counter, and an iMet sensor. The detailed information can be found in the readme file.



ARM has launched the Inaugural Campaigns for ARM Research using Unmanned Systems, or ICARUS, an internal initiative at the third ARM Mobile Facility at Oliktok Point, Alaska, that is collecting spatial information about the rapidly changing arctic environment using unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and tethered balloon systems (TBS) in conjunction with ground-based instruments.

The data collected were part of ICARUS measurements using TBS, and provided vertical profiles of the basic atmospheric state (temperature, humidity, and horizontal wind), as well as aerosol properties.
