Abstract:

In late summer 2013, the research expedition Oden Arctic Technology Research Cruise (OATRC 2013) took place in the waters northeast of Greenland onboard the Swedish icebreaker Oden. The expedition was carried out by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in collaboration with the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat. OATRC 2013 was a project associated with Sustainable Arctic Marine and Coastal Technology (SAMCoT), which is a centre for research-based innovation, initiated by the Research Council of Norway and hosted by NTNU. OATRC 2013 was a follow-up to last year’s expedition to this region.

Description:

This data set contains meteorological, oceanographic and ship data collected during the expedition Oden Arctic Technology Research Cruise 2013 (OATRC 2013), which was an international research cruise using the icebreaker Oden in the Arctic Ocean. The expedition embarked from Svalbard, Norway on 19 Augusti and proceeded along the coast of Greenland from where the expedition returned to Svalbard on September 23, 2013. Data include: Meteorological variables: Air temperature, Humidity, Wind direction/speed, Atmospheric pressure, Photosynthetic Active Radiation (PAR). Oceanographic variables: Sea water temperature, Conductivity, Salinity and Sound velocity. Ship data: Position, Speed, Course, Water depth. Quality Information: Obviously erroneous data (e.g. negative air pressure) have been omitted. No other processing or quality check of the data has been undertaken. Users should be aware of this in further data handling and analysis.
