Atmospheric boundary layer measurements from Athabasca Glacier field campaign, June 2015

Description: This dataset consists of data from a suite of instruments deployed on and around Athabasca Glacier in June 2015. The campaign aimed to capture the atmospheric circulation over the glacier, its interaction with the pro-glacial valley and impact on glacier surface energy balance. The dataset consists of timeseries from numerous automatic weather stations, surface energy balance and boundary layer profiling systems. The data has had some quality control applied, mainly to correct known instrument biases, fill missing data and resample to a common 30-minute timestamp. Data from a novel kite profiling system has been processed into mean profiles of temperature and wind speed for individual kite flights. The 12-day period of data runs from 2015-06-18 00:30 to 2015-06-30 00:00 Mountain Standard time.
