    The dataset is composed of raw files recorded with a SIMRAD EK60 three-frequency split-beam echosounder that was operated continuously during the annual ArcticNet (2005-2014) sampling expeditions in the Canadian Arctic aboard the CCGS Amundsen. Three 7° transducers were hull-mounted, two in oil-filled arctic wells protected by a 2.5 cm thick acoustically transparent polycarbonate plate (38 and 120 kHz) and one in a Traveocean piston well in direct contact with water (200 kHz). The acoustic signal was recorded continuously on a PC using ER60 software version 2.0.0. Ping interval was set at 2 or 3 s and the pulse length was set at 1.024 ms.

    During the ArcticNet annual cruises of the research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen, characteristics of the near-surface atmosphere are monitored in conjunction with surface sea water properties to observe the relationship between the surface micro-climate and the air-sea exchange , with particular interest in CO2. Central to this integrated dataset is an eddy covariance system used to monitor fluxes of CO2, H2O, heat and momentum. The system continuously sampled the following variables at a rate of 10 Hz (instrument used to collect each variable is in parentheses, and approximate instrument height above surface is indicated): -3D wind velocity (Gill WindMaster Pro ultra-sonic anemometer) - 15m -Sonic air temperature (Gill WindMaster Pro ultra-sonic anemometer) - 15m -CO2 molar concentration (LI7500 open path gas analyzer) - 15m -H2O molar concentration (LI7500 open path gas analyzer) - 15m -CO2 mixing ratio (LI7000 integrated into a closed path system) - 15m -H2O mixing ratio (LI7000 integrated into a closed path system) - 15m -3D ship motion - angular rates and accelerations (MotionPak, Systron Donner) - 13m All instruments were mounted on a meteorological tower on the bow of the research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen.

    During the ArcticNet annual cruises of the research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen, characteristics of the near-surface atmosphere (basic meteorological elements, incident radiation, CO2 concentration) are monitored in conjunction with surface sea water properties (temperature, salinity, dissolved CO2 and O2) to observe the relationship between the surface micro-climate and the air-sea exchange, with particular interest in CO2. Central to this integrated dataset, the following meteorological variables were recorded at 1 minute intervals (instrument used to collect each variable is in parentheses, and approximate instrument height above surface is indicated): -Wind speed (RM Young Wind Monitor 05103) - 16m height -Wind direction (RM Young Wind Monitor 05103) -16m height -Air Temperature (Vaisala HMP45C212) - 15m height -Relative Humidity (Vaisala HMP45C212) -15m height -Surface temperature (Apogee SI-111 Precision Infrared radiometer) - 8m height All instruments were mounted on a meteorological tower on the bow of the research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen.

Central to this integrated dataset is an under-way sea water pCO2 system (General Oceanics 8050) attached to the ship's clean water intake. The following variables were measured continuously and logged at 1 minute intervals: -pCO2sw (LI7000 gas analyzer) -Equilibrator water temperature -conductivity -pH -dissolved O2

    The CTD data was obtained during the 2007-2008 ArcticNet scientific cruise #0706. The data were collected from October 7 to 12, 2007, aboard the CCGS Amundsen. There were 13 casts, associated to 7 oceanographic stations, in the Northwest Passage. The following parameters were measured: temperature, conductivity and pressure (with a Sea-Bird SBE-9plus), dissolved oxygen (Sea-Bird SBE-43), pH (Sea-Bird SBE-18-I), fluorescence (Seapoint chlorophyll fluorometer), nitrate concentration (Satlantic MBARI-ISUS 5T), transmittance (Wetlabs C-Star transmissometer), light intensity (PAR; Biospherical Instruments QCP2300) and surface light intensity (sPAR; Biospherical Instruments QCP2200). Quality control procedures were applied to the data. Data are available on the Polar Data Catalogue and at the Marine Environmental Data Service (MEDS) of Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
