Hydrographic survey of the Overturning of the Subpolar North Atlantic Project (OSNAP) line and servicing of OSNAP moorings along this line. OSNAP monitors the northward volume, heat and freshwater transport across the North Atlantic. Also, surface drifters will be deployed on the East Greenland shelf to investigate the exchange of fresh (melt) water with the open ocean and the effects on the ocean circulation.
