Description 
Summary

The overall objective of the Variability of Exchange In the Northern Seas (VEINS) project was to measure and to model the variability of fluxes between the Arctic Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean with a view on implementing a longer term system of critical measurements needed to understand the high-latitude oceans steering role in decadal climate variability. The field work, modelling activities and analysis was carried out by 18 institutions from 9 European countries. The following data were collected during the VEINS field phase: 3906 CTD casts 1329 bottle stations (e.g. oxygen, nutrients), and including tracers at 444 stations Current meter moorings at 32 locations Total number of time series: 201 including ADCP moorings at 7 locations producing 345 time series bins.
