Physical oceanography measured on water bottle samples during RV MARIA S. MERIAN cruise MSM85


During RV MARIA S. MERIAN cruise MSM85 in the subpolar North Atlantic and the Greenland Sea (23 July - 13 August, 2019) conductivity, temperature, and depth (CTD) measurements were made using a SeaBird 9+ CTD equipped with sensors for temperature, conductivity, and oxygen, as well as a Seapoint turbidity sensor and a WET labs fluorometer. A total number of 160 CTD casts were carried out, while crossing the East Greenland Shelf and the East Greenland Current. The stations were organized into eight sections, which covered the Irminger, Iceland and Greenland Sea as well as the Denmark Strait. Three additional stations were made across the entrance of the Greenlandic fjord Scoresby Sound (Kangertittivaq).
