Mooring-based (YS06) data collected in the period May-June 2014 in Young Sound, Greenland


Time series of currents were obtained in the period May- June 2014 by use of an ice-tethered mooring in Young Sound, Greenland. At YS06 (74.245o N, 20.229o W) the mooring consisted of a 600 kHz downward-looking Nortek Aquadopp ADCP. Velocities were corrected for magnetic deviation (18.5o). The water column sampling spanned between 1.5 and 30 m depth every 30 min. The ADCP was set to sample 80 bins (bin size of 0.5 m) and each bin consisted of a 1 min ensamble average of 60 pings. The first and last bins were centred at 1m and 41 m depth. Only bins between 2.5 and 30 m were adequately measured.

Shelf Sci., 15, 194-205.
