Raw physical oceanography and current meter data from mooring F5-18 in the Fram Strait, September 2018 - July 2020


Time series data of physical oceanography (seawater conductivity, temperature, pressure, salinity), ocean current velocities, hydroacoustics and multi-frequency acoustic backscatter were obtained from mooring F5-18 in the Fram Strait in September 2018 - July 2020 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 MSM76 and recovered during MSM93. The attached archive contains raw data files of three Seabird SBE37 microcats (nominal depths: 46m, 247m, 731m; sampling interval 20 min), one RDI 600kHz ADCP (nominal depth: 34m; sampling interval 30min), one RDI Longranger ADCP (nominal depth: 403m; sampling interval 1h) and one AADI RCM11 current meter (nominal depth: 730m; sampling interval 2h). The 600kHz ADCP wasn't aligned correctly in the water column due to issues with the attached flotations. Therefore, the data is likely not usable. The mooring also included one ASL Acoustic Zooplankton Fish Profiler (nominal depth: 135m; data archived elsewhere) and one Develogic Sonovault (nominal depth: 790m; data also archived elsewhere). Auxiliary information such as sensor calibration sheets, mooring diagrams and schedule files are also provided, if applicable.

The file F5-18.zip includes all available sensor raw data from mooring F5-18. 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 and MSM93 onboard RV MARIA S. MERIAN. 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. We also acknowledge funding from the Helmholtz infrastructure program "Frontiers in Arctic Marine Monitoring", and the Alfred-Wegener-Institut Helmholtz-Zentrum für Polar- und Meeresforschung.
