Details of ADCP mooring data in 2007-2008 north of Svalbard over the Yermak Plateau in the Yermak Pass


Dataset identification

Title of datasetADCP mooring data in 2007-2008 north of Svalbard over the Yermak Plateau in the Yermak Pass
Narrative summary of datasetThe mooring was deployed on 25 July 2007 from the R/V Haakon Mosby at 80.601°N, 7.119°E (depth of 745 m) in the Yermak Pass over the Yermak Plateau north of Svalbard. It comprised an upward-looking RDI 75kHz Long Ranger Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) at 585 m with 16 m vertical resolution and a 1hour sampling time, and an ocean profiler on a taut cable between 130 and 530 m. The mooring was recovered on 23 September 2008 by the K/V Svalbard. The dataset is composed of the raw data from the ADCP, after declination correction. A white shaded zone is visible in the data between 380 and 500 m depth throughout the time series. It corresponds to the reflection of the acoustic bins on the profiler stuck on the cable.
