Abstract
Data from three PROVOLO cruises conducted to the Lofoten Basin of the Norwegian Sea: - Cruise HM2016611, R.V. Haakon Mosby, 26 May-15 June 2016 - Cruise KB2017606, R.V. Kristine Bonnevie, 10-24 March 2017 - Cruise HB2017618, R.V. Kristine Bonnevie, 2-15 September 2017 PROVOLO (Watermass transformation processes and vortex dynamics in the Lofoten Basin of the Norwegian Sea) is led at the Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen (PI: Ilker Fer) and is funded by the Research Council of Norway (project number 250784) for the period 01.01.2016-31.12.2019 to describe and quantify the processes and pathways of energy transfer and mixing in the Lofoten Basin and their role in water mass transformation. The cruise data set is organized in four files, categorized by the instrument and data type, and includes merged data from all three cruises as follows: PROVOLO_CTD: Shipboard salinity, temperature and density profiles PROVOLO_SADCP: Current profiles from vessel-mounted acoustic Doppler current profilers PROVOLO_LADCP: Current profiles from lowered acoustic Doppler current profilers PROVOLO_VMP: Ocean microstructure profiles The summary and comments sections of each file have a descrpton of the corresponding data set. Further details on the processing, an overview of the data, and a detailed list of stations are provided in the attached cruise reports.
