MarineBasis Zackenberg - Water column - Mooring CTD measurements

The Greenland Ecosystem Monitoring Program has maintained a mooring in Young Sound -Tyrolerfjord, approximately 15 km from the outer sill (74.322° N, 20.269° W). This mooring has been serviced and re-deployed every August from 2003 to 2015. mZERO was equipped with a CTD (Sea-Bird SBE37SMP). The mean sensor depth was ~ 63 m depth (+/- 2.7 m; range: 69 m (2008-2009) - 62 m (2009-2010; 2012-2013)). The CTD sampling interval varied between 15 and 20 min (2003-2009) to 10 min (2009-2015). Data gaps exist due to mooring malfunction, or when redeployment was hampered by ice conditions. Accuracy of the temperature and conductivity sensor is ±0.002 °C and ± 0.0003 S m-1, respectively.

Work is focused in two fjord systems (Godthåbsfjord and Young Sund) both influenced by glaciers connected to the Greenland Ice Sheet.
