BALTEX Field Campaign
Large Scale Observations
BALTEX is designed as a cage experiment to assess the total heat and water flux divergence of the BALTEX area. One of the BALTEX field experiments, BASIS, had an intensive field phase in the Gulf of Bothnia in the Baltic Sea in a boundary zone between the open sea and the ice-covered sea from 16 February to 7 March, 1998.
This case study presents data from 16 Feb 1998 to 7 March 1998 and covers a region from 45N to 75N latitude and from 0 to 45E longitude.
