RV Akademik Ioffe Cruise 45 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.
