Abstract : This Handbook summarizes the radiation data from the Soviet "North Pole" drifting research stations operated in the Arctic from 1950 to 1991. The Handbook contains reduced mean monthly values of the fluxes of solar radiation for solar elevations up to 35 deg at 5 deg intervals, monthly totals of the net radiation and its constituents, and mean monthly values of the albedo of the sea ice surfaces. The Handbook presents information of interest to specialists studying the physics of the atmosphere, climatology, geography, and related disciplines. Arctic, solar radiation, radiation flux, global radiation, soviet north pole drifting stations, diffuse radiation, direct radiation, albedo, arctic sea ice, meteorology, atmospheric science, climatology, geography, thermoelectric instruments.
