Description 
Summary

The Norwegian Coastal Steamer collected samples for temperature and salinity from the cooling intake from (normally) 16 positions between Bergen and Oslo. Most of these data exist only as paper copies. Processed datasets, ten days mean or monthly mean, exist for 6 stations from the period 1936-1983/84. Two stations between Bergen and Stavanger were also a part of the North Sea Steamer program until 2002.
