Svalbard Fjord Conductivity, Temperature, Depth Data, 2001-2004
Entry ID: ARCSS150

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This data set includes vertical ocean profiles of temperature, salinity and backscatter beneath ice cover in Svalbard Fjord, Norway. The data were collected by a Seabird Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) system mounted on a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) on three trips: the north side of Van Mijenfjorden in March 2001; the south of Van Mijenfjorden in March 2004; the south of Van Mijenfjorden in June 2004. To address the differences between theory and observation regarding the rate of ice formation, supercooling in the ocean boundary layer, and the effective diffusivities of heat and salt, the small-scale physics of sea ice formation were studied. This data set is available as tab-delimited ASCII text files, sizes 32 KB to 2,033 KB.
