Ice mass balance buoy measured GPS locations and surface temperatures of a drifting sea ice floe for the Arctic sea ice station in 2016 (ARA07B)

The data includes the hourly GPS locations and 2-hourly surface temperatures of the drifting sea ice floe where the Arctic sea ice camp was carried out in 2016 (ARA07B), which was obtained by the sea ice mass balance buoy deployed on 15 August. Originally the buoy measured the 5-m depth vertical temperature profile at 2.5 cm intervals from near-surface air to upper-ocean underneath sea ice. From the temperature profile, the surface temperature was retrieved by picking up the two neighboring thermistor chips just below the air-snow/ice interface and averaging them. The period is limited from the deployment to 19 August when the IBRV Araon sailed the Chukchi Sea.
