Moored current and temperature measurements in the Faroe Bank Channel overflow region at mooring site C3, June 2012-June 2013

The temperature measurements were made by accurate temperature sensors on Sea-Bird Electronics SBE39 and SBE56, and SBE37 instruments, as well as by the temperature sensors on current meters. Current measurements were made by Anderaa current meters (RCM7/8), a Nortek current meter (Aquadopp), and various ADCPs (RD-Instruments 75/150/300 kHz Workhorse, Anderaa 600 kHz RDCP, and Nortek Continental). Instrumentation and other details of the moorings can be found in Ullgren et al. (2016). The sampling rate was 15 s for SBE56s, 5 min for SBE37s and SBE39s, 5-60 min for ADCPs, 1 h for RCMs, and 20 min for the Aquadopp. Time series of the vertical position and tilt of the instruments were calculated using hourly mean measured currents, and the Mooring Design and Dynamics software (Dewey, 1999). Hourly velocity and temperature records at corrected depths were then linearly interpolated to 1 m vertical resolution. The data for this data set is extracted at 5-m vertical separation without loss of vertical resolution (the smallest vertical bin separation of the ADCPs 4 m).
