Raw physical oceanography and ocean current velocity data from mooring SCO1-1 in Scoresby Sound, East Greenland, Aug 2018 – Aug 2022


Time-series data of physical oceanography and ocean current velocities were obtained from mooring SCO1-1 in the Fram Strait from Aug 2018 to Aug 2022. The mooring was deployed during RV MARIA S. MERIAN expedition MSM76 and recovered during RV POLARSTERN expedition PS131. The attached archive contains raw data files of four Seabird SBE16 SeaCATs (nominal depths: 410m, 472m, 538m, 609m; sampling interval 1h), three SBE56 temperature logger (nominal depths: 442m, 502m, 630m; sampling interval 20s) and two AADI RCM11 current meter (nominal depths: 411m, 610m; sampling interval 2h). Auxiliary information such as sensor calibration sheets, mooring diagrams, and schedule files are also provided, if applicable. The data of one SBE16 (472m) could not be obtained because the instrument did not connect.

The file SCO1-1.zip includes all available sensor raw data from mooring SCO1-1. The structure of the unzipped folders is mooring->sensor/sampler type->serial number->instrument files. All instruments were synched to UTC before deployment, and the offset after the recovery is supplied in the respective instrument folder, if available. The archive also contains the sensor calibration sheets/files and relevant sampler schedule files, if available. Finally, mooring schematics are also attached as pdfs in the root folder.The authors are grateful to the captains, crews and technical/scientific staff of the expeditions MSM76 onboard RV Maria S. Merian and PS131 onboard RV Polarstern. Many individuals have contributed to the conception of the research, the preparation of the instruments, the deployment and recoveries, as well as to the retrieval of the data, which we greatly appreciate.
