Water vapor mole fractions measured in the Swiss container during MOSAiC 2019/2020


This dataset contains minute-averaged water vapor mole fractions measured during the year-long Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC) expedition from October 2019 to September 2020. The measurements were performed in the Swiss container on the D-deck of Research Vessel Polarstern. Data were collected by cavity ring-down spectroscopy using a commercial Picarro instrument (model G2401). The data columns include the Date and Time in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), the latitude and longitude of Research Vessel Polarstern, the MOSAiC event label, and the water vapor mole fraction in µmol/mol.

We used 1 sec time resolution positional data from the following datasets: PS122/1: Rex, M (2020), PS122/2: Haas, C (2020), PS122/3: Kanzow, T (2020), PS122/4: Rex, M (2021a), PS122/5: Rex, M (2021b).
