Abstract : This report summarizes a comprehensive set of surface-level meteorological data collected on the Mikhail Somov over sea ice in the Southern Ocean during the U.S.-U.S.S.R. Weddell Polynya Expedition in October and November of 1981. The data assembled here comprise three distinct sets of measurements: the standard meteorological observations at 3-hour intervals for 41 consecutive days, radiation and ice-surface temperature measurements every hour for 23 days while the Somov was within the Antarctic ice pack, and 23 sets of atmospheric surface-layer profiles of velocity, temperature and humidity for various sea-ice conditions.
