Water temperature, salinity, and velocity including ADCP ice tracking from moorings A2, A3, A4 in Bering Strait from 2017-07-09 to 2018-08-11 (NCEI Accession 0189602)

This data set contains physical oceanographic data from acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCP) and conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensors on moorings in the Bering Strait from summer 2017 to summer 2018. There were a total of three moorings. Two moorings (A2 and A4) are in the US zone of the strait and one mooring (A3) is at a site just north of the strait. Mooring deployments were funded by the NSF-Arctic Observing Network award PLR-1304052 (PI: Woodgate, Heimbach and Nguyen). Data files are in text format.

The mooring work required 2 dedicated cruises:
- in 2017 (7th - 15th July), a ~ 9 day cruise on the US vessel Norseman II deployed the moorings. Some CTD sections were run on this cruise, and those data are archived separately.
- in 2018 (10th - 19th August), a ~ 10 day cruise on the US vessel Norseman II deployed the moorings. Some CTD sections were run on this cruise, and those data are archived separately.

Mooring names include a two digit suffix to represent year of deployment.
