Ryder 2019 - Meteorological, Oceanographic and Ship Data Collected Onboard Icebreaker Oden

SND-ID: 2021-118

This study is part of the collection Icebreaker Oden


Ryder 2019 was a research expedition on board the Swedish icebreaker Oden to the remote Ryder Glacier in northwest Greenland. The data presented here are the meteorological, oceanographical and ship data collected onboard Oden during the expedition.

The Ryder 2019 expedition with the Swedish icebreaker Oden was a multidisciplinary expedition, spanning the fields of atmospheric chemistry and physics, biology, climatology, ecology, genomics, glaciology, oceanography, marine geology, geophysics, geochemistry and archaeology. The overarching goal was to investigate the dynamics and development of the marine cryosphere and ocean conditions over time in the marine realm of Ryder Glacier; more specifically in the Sherard Osborn Fjord and adjacent area of northern Nares Strait and the southern Lincoln Sea. Earth’s marine cryosphere includes glaciers extending into the ocean, ice sheets with their base suppressed below sea level, sea ice, gas hydrates and subsea permafrost.

Scientific motivation:
One of the primary scientific motivations of the expedition is related to the role of outlet glaciers, su

Data collection

  • Description of the mode of collection: Data collection onboard IB Oden is based around a server system and a MySQL database. Sensors are directly connected to this system and data are stored in the original time resolution, as delivered from each individual sensor. The data is published as 1-minute averages. Higher resolution is available upon request. The data collection system on IB Oden (“Nyval 17”) has been in operation since 2017.
