This cruise was a contribution to the RUSSIA CLIVAR Community Research Programme. The sections over North Atlantic sills between Greenland - Iceland - Faroe Islands and Shetlands were designed to estimate variability of the meridional fluxes and water mass exchange between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean. The Denmark Strait section was repeated three times during six days to study short-term variability of the water mass properties circulation and meridional transport.
