Water temperature and salinity data from CTD taken from the research vessel Adolf Jensen collected in the Sermilik Fjord from 2015-08-02 to 2015-08-11 (NCEI Accession 0171277)

Thirty-one temperature and salinity profiles from Sermilik Fjord in East Greenland, close to the town of Tasiilaq. The profiles were collected with a Seabird SBE25plus CTD (#0251108) during August 2015 from the research vessel Adolf Jensen. The profiles are 1-m bin averages. The profiles form an approximate along-fjord transect; a handful of profiles were collected on the shelf outside of the fjord. These data were collected as part of a project that monitors Sermilik Fjord to determine what water masses flow into the fjord; in particular, if warm, Atlantic water from the Irminger Sea is able to penetrate into the fjord. Data are in netcdf format.
