Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Water temperature, salinity, and current velocity collected at mooring S1 in the Amundsen Sea from 2010-02-15 to 2016-01-17 (NCEI Accession 0211128)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This dataset contains water temperature, salinity, and current velocity from multi-year mooring placed in the Getz-Dotson trough in the Amundsen Sea, on the West Antarctic continental shelf during 2010-2016. The mooring was placed in the same position between 2010 and 2020 (turning the mooring over every 1 or 2 years). There is a gap between 2016 - 2018, when the mooring had gone missing. Temperature and salinity was recorded all years on at least 5 points in the water column. Velocity was recorded most years. Data are in text format.
