International Arctic Buoy Programme (IABP)

The University of Washington's International Arctic Buoy Programme (IABP) "maintains a network of automatic data buoys in the Arctic Basin which monitor synoptic-scale fields of pressure, temperature, and ice motion to support real-time operations and meteorological and oceanographic research." A rich array of information includes monthly buoy maps, data sets, buoy reports, and a buoy motion and ice concentration animation which uses data from 1979 to 1994 (QuickTime, 46 Mb). Highlighted reports cover topics like surface air temperature variations and observations of ice motion. Additionally, there are browseable images and data plots with accompanying audio files (Sound Machine), and buoy diagrams.
