 ›› Track chart
A physical oceanogrphy cruise to conduct a hydrography survey of Storfjorden in Svalbard, and to investigate mixing of the West Spitsbergen Current. Main tasks:
-Service a bottom-mounted RDI ADCP (Storfjorden sill)
-Standard hydrography section Soerkapp-Vest
-Hydrography survey of Storfjorden
-Current, small scale hydrography and dissipation measurements across the West-Spitsbergen continental slope and at Yermak Plateau
-A short-term mooring deployment/recovery at Yermak Plateau
-A long-term moored profiler deployment at Yermak Plateau
