Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Water temperature, conductivity, and currents data collected by CTDs and current meters on moored buoys in the Sermilik Fjord and Kangerdlugssuaq Glacier, in East Greenland from 2009-08 to 2012-09 (NCEI Accession 0127320)

The data included in this dataset were collected in East Greenland in the Sermilik Fjord, located in the Ammassalik district close to the town of Tasiilaq and at the Kangerdlugssuaq Glacier. Data collection was conducted by deploying eleven moorings from August 2009 to August 2010. One mooring was not recovered until Septmeber 2012 and three moorings wet never recovered. The recovered moorings located in the Sermilik Fjord were named CM1, CM3, CM5, CM6, and SM3. The recovered moorings located at Kangerdlugssuaq Glacier were GP1, GP2, and GP3. The moorings were equipped with SBE MicroCATs, Onset UTBI-001 TidbiTs, Nortek Aquadopps, RBR DR-1050s, and RBR XR-420s.
