Abstract
Three moorings were deployed along a south-north line on the western slope of Spitsbergen, near the southern flank of Yermak Plateau at about 80N. The moorings were densely instrumented with temperature, salinity, pressure sensors, point current meters and acoustic current profilers. The mooring records cover the period from September 2014 to August 2015. The data set from each mooring is hourly averaged and vertically gridded at 5 dbar seawater pressure levels. One data file is provided for each mooring. Y1 is the deepest, southernmost mooring at approximately 1600 m isobath. Y3 is in the middle, at about 1200 m depth and Y2 is the shallowest, northernmost mooring at about 840 m. The measurements were supported by the Research Council of Norway, through the project NICE (On Thin Ice: Role of Ocean Heat Flux in Sea Ice Melt, project number 229786).
