Water temperature, conductivity, and others collected from moorings in the North Atlantic Ocean from 2010-08-18 to 2012-06-30 (NCEI Accession 0164585)

A set of eight moorings were set up across the Charlie Gibbs Fracture Zone to measure the intermediate and deep water variability for a two-year period, from a depth of 500 meters to the ocean floor. The moorings held a total of three McLane Moored Profilers (MMPs), 10 Nortek AquaDopp current meters, 18 Aanderaa RCM11 current meters, and 36 SBE MicroCATs, deployed from 18-20 August 2010 through 28-30 June 2012. This yielded a nearly two-year record of velocity, temperature, conductivity, pressure, and salinity across the interface between the generally eastward flowing Labrador Sea Water carried underneath the North Atlantic Current and the westward flowing deep Iceland-Scotland Overflow Water. Data files provided in netcdf format.
