The 1987 Marginal Ice Zone Experiment (MIZEX 87) was a multi-national interdisciplinary project in the Fram Strait from 19 March to 11 April 1987. Surface and upper-level measurements of meteorological parameters were obtained from three ships, the R/V Polar Circle, the R/V Haakon Mosby and the R/V valdivia. This atlas contains: 1) Time series of surface wind velocity, barometric pressure, relative humidity, and atmospheric temperature from the ships; 2) Maps showing six-hour averages of the locations of the ships and ice edge, and surface wind velocity vectors at the ships; 3) High-resolution profiles of wind, temperature and humidity up to 2500 m; and 4) Maps of sea- level pressure every 12 hours. Keywords: Arctic meteorology; Marginal ice zones
