    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. As part of this integrated dataset, the following radiation variables were recorded at 1 minute intervals (instrument used to collect each variable is in parentheses): -Incoming shortwave radiation (Eppley pyranometer, model PSP) -Incoming longwave radiation (Eppley pyrgeometer, model PIR) -Incoming photosynthetically active radiation (Kipp & Zonen, PAR-Lite) All instruments were mounted on a platform above the wheelhouse of the CCGS Amundsen

    During the 2007-2008 CFL IPY Project, the research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen overwintered in the South Beaufort Sea/Amundsen Gulf flaw lead system. The purpose of this experiment was to comprehensively study the flaw lead system through an entire annual cycle. As part of this project, the following radiation variables were recorded at 1 minute intervals (instrument used to collect each variable is in parentheses): -Incoming shortwave radiation (Eppley pyranometer, model PSP) -Incoming longwave radiation (Eppley pyrgeometer, model PIR) -Incoming photosynthetically active radiation (Kipp & Zonen, PARlite) -Incoming UV-A radiation (Kipp & Zonen, UVS-AB-T) - available after April 4, 2008 -Incoming UV-B radiation (Kipp & Zonen, UVS-AB-T) - available after April 4, 2008 All instruments were mounted on a platform on the wheelhouse of the CCGS Amundsen.

    This dataset consists of continuous records of downwelling irradiances at several UVR (305, 313, 320, 340 and 380nm) and PAR wavelengths, from September to November 2003 and from June to August 2004. The GUV-510 surface radiometer (Biospherical Instruments), mounted on the top of the wheelhouse of the CCGS Amundsen, provided a measure of cosine-corrected downwelling irradiance in the UVR and PAR.

    Field observations were made in the southern Beaufort Sea and the Amundsen Gulf as part of CASES 2003 expedition. Samples were collected during the first two legs of the expedition from 13 September to 14 October 2003 (open water) and from 15 October to 25 November 2003 (newly formed sea ice) onboard the Canadian icebreaker CCGS Amundsen. Temperature and salinity profiles were obtained using a SeaBird 911 Conductivity¿Temperature¿Depth (CTD) probe. Nutrient concentrations (nitrate plus nitrite, phosphate, and silicate) were determined on fresh samples (within 1 h of sampling) using standard colorimetric methodologies adapted for use on an Auto-Analyzer 3 (Bran þ Luebbe). A RAMSES ASC scalar hyperspectral irradiance sensor (TriOS) was mounted on the flight bridge to measure downwelling irradiance with 1 nm intervals during the day. A total of 50 and 102 discrete water samples were collected over the euphotic zone at 13 and 20 stations for legs 1 and 2, respectively for fluorometrically chlorophyll a measurements and absorption analysis of phytoplankton, non-algal particules (NAP) and colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM). Water samples (preserved in acidic Lugol solution) were enumerated and identified to the lowest possible taxonomic rank using an inverted microscope. Concentrations of chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b were obtained by HPLC measurements and these two pigments were used for the calculation of the ratios of chl b to chl a.
