INTAROS Data Catalogue

Integrated Arctic observation system (INTAROS) is a research and innovation project funded by EC - H2020-BG-09-2016 for 5 years (2016-2021). INTAROS has a strong focus on contributing to the in-situ observing system and carries out fieldwork activities in coordination with national and international initiatives. The fieldwork will take place in different regions of the Arctic both on land and in ocean. Partners also compile, quality control and make available datasets collected by earlier campaigns, to provide access to datasets previously only available in closed communities and to extend time series of key ocean and climate parameters such as sea ice concentration, thickness and displacement.

The INTAROS Data Catalogue contains descriptions of data collected or compiled by partners during the project, or where INTAROS partners have contributed to data acquisition or publication. INTAROS conducts a series of field experiments in different regions of the Arctic, and collects a suite of parameters for different themes:

  • Atmosphere,
  • Ocean,
  • Sea ice,
  • Marine Ecosystem,
  • Terrestrial,
  • Glaciology,
  • Natural hazards, and
  • Community-based monitoring.

INTAROS partners also exploits data from various satellite missions, to generate long time series of key ocean and climate variables for the Arctic Region.

For both collected and compiled datasets, this catalogue provides general information such as location, time, parameters contained, contact person and license. A link to the dataset itself is also provided, when the provider has made it available online.

The catalogue will grow as the project progresses and partners prepare more datasets and make them available for sharing with other with other scientists and stakeholders.
