PurposeResearch
ObjectivesObjectives

1. To retrieve a set of moorings that was deployed the previous year and redeploy some of them.
2. To carry out a hydrographic/velocity/water sample survey of the East Greenland Current between Denmark Strait and Fram Strait.

The mooring work was completed during the first 10 days of the cruise. The moorings were located in the vicinity of the Denmark Strait and all of them were successfully serviced. We then transitioned into the hydrographic phase of the cruise and occupied a set of high-resolution CTD/velocity/watersample transects across the East Greenland shelf and slope, some of them in the pack-ice. Altogether we occupied 10 hydrographic sections.
