Kinematically corrected GNSS/INS buoy data during the MOSAiC expedition 2019-2020



    This dataset contains the post-processed GNSS/INS buoy data for a kinematic correction of a moving base station. The GNSS/INS buoys were deployed on sea ice during the 2019-20 MOSAiC expedition. These buoys recorded raw GNSS/INS data at a sampling rate of 10 Hz. For the kinematic correction, two buoys (with overlapping measurements of each other) were selected, and one of the buoys was used as a moving "base" and the other as the "rover". The post-processed dataset contains kinematically corrected latitude, longitude and velocity of the rover, as well as the baseline distance between the rover and base. The main objective of the kinematic correction is to create high-precision and high-frequency data to measure ice dynamics at a few centimetre accuracies. The buoys were assembled by the University of Huddersfield team and the deployment was done by the MOSAiC ice team throughout the expedition. This work was funded by NERC MOSAiC program NE/S002545/1.
