During summer 2019, the EU Horizon-2020 iCUPE (Integrative and Comprehensive Understanding on Polar Environments) project will provide a series of datasets (and their descriptions) publicly available to wider communities of research, stakeholders, decision-makers, and ends-users. These will include ground-based measurements for particle number, black carbon and ozone concentration; occurrence, transport and exchange fluxes of emerging organic contaminants in snow, ice, and water of the Arctic regions; vertical and horizontal variability of the atmospheric boundary layer aerosol using unmanned aerial systems; etc. In total, about 20 datasets are planned to be delivered as products during the project, being a part of the ERA-PLANET programme. A short introductory information is presented in the datasets’ teasers. Contact the iCUPE Project Office for more information.
