CONCORDIASI: Concordiasi


Concordiasi is a joint French-United States initiative that started during the International Polar Year (IPY). The field experiments took place over Antarctica during September-November 2008, December 2009, and September-December 2010.

This archive includes data sets from the United States components of Concordiasi. These included high-accuracy, dual frequency GPS receivers developed at Purdue University flown on CNES balloons, driftsondes developed at NCAR that released dropsondes as they circled the Antarctic, small lightweight sensors to perform ozone observations during long duration superpressure balloon flights developed at the University of Colorado, and measurements of polar stratospheric clouds using particle counters developed at the University of Wyoming.
