Mooring and Drifting Buoy Data: Beaufort Gyre Freshwater Experiment, 2003
Entry ID: ARCSS165

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: In the summer of 2003, investigators established an observational program to measure the freshwater content (in sea ice and in the ocean) of freshwater fluxes in the Beaufort Gyre using moorings and drifting buoys. They collected temperature time series, salinity, current, sea ice draft, and bottom pressure measurements. Investigators used conventional mooring systems containing a McLane Moored ...
