North Pole Environmental Observatory (NPEO) Oceanographic Mooring Data, 2001-2002
Entry ID: ARCSS156

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This data set, acquired with an oceanographic bottom-anchored mooring, includes sea-ice draft and depth data, conductivity, temperature, pressure, salinity, and ocean current measurements such as speed and direction. Each mooring contains vertically distributed instruments, which measure ocean properties at fixed depths and record data internally. These data are retrieved annually when the mooring ...

Quality Pressure is readily checked for consistency between different instruments, noting. However, investigators noted that precise ocean depth is difficult to determine and that line length errors are possible. The 2001-2002 mooring was well positioned with respect to depth. Four pressure sensors near the top of the mooring report instrument depths within 2 m of design depths. One sensor on RCM-7, ... View entire text
