Current velocity data from mooring M6 on the upper continental slope, east of Filchner Trough, February 2017 – February 2021


Time series data of physical oceanography (seawater conductivity, temperature, pressure, salinity) and ocean current velocities were obtained from mooring M6 on the upper part (500 m isobath) of the continental slope, just east of the Filchner Trough in the southern Weddell Sea in February 2017 - February 2021. The mooring was deployed during the WAPITI expedition on James Clark Ross (JR16004), and recovered during the COSMUS expedition with Polarstern (PS124). The attached archive contains data from 1 RCM7 (24 meters above bottom (mab herafter) and sampling interval (sint hereafter) 2h), 5 SBE56 (25, 59, 74, 126, 202 mab, sint: 120 s), 3 SBE37 (34, 99, 176 mab, sint: 600 s), 1 RDI ADCP 150 kHz (235 mab, upwardlooking, sint: 1h), 1 SBE39 (15 mab, sint: 900s). Mooring diagrams and information about data processing are provided
