Raw physical oceanography and ocean current velocity data from mooring F2-20 in the Fram Strait, July 2020 – July 2022


Time-series data of physical oceanography and ocean current velocities were obtained from mooring F2-20 in the Fram Strait from July 2020 to July 2022 as part of the Helmholtz infrastructure program Frontiers in Arctic Marine Monitoring (FRAM) and the long-term monitoring program at AWI HAUSGARTEN. The mooring was deployed during RV MARIA S. MERIAN expedition MSM93 and recovered during RV POLARSTERN expedition PS131. The attached archive contains raw data files of three Seabird SBE37 MicroCATs (nominal depths: 17m, 251m, 777m; sampling interval 30m/1h), 10 Seabird SBE56 temperature loggers (nominal depths: 17m, 32m, 52m, 95m, 145m, 200m, 301m, 351m, 402m, 453m; sampling interval 60s), one RDI Longranger ADCP (nominal depth: 401m; sampling interval 2h) and one Nortek Aquadopp current meter (nominal depth: 726m; sampling interval 1h). Auxiliary information such as sensor calibration sheets, mooring diagrams, and schedule files are also provided, if applicable. The SBE56 at 402m was lost. The SBE37 at 251m had power issues and stopped recording after 2 months.

The file F2-20.zip includes all available sensor raw data from mooring F2-20. 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 MSM93 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.
