| Query EDMED |
|Data holding centre||Marine Research Institute|
|Project||Hydrographic conditions in Icelandic waters|
The Icelandic part of the project consisted of two standard sections, one from the west coast of Iceland over to Greenland, the other from the east coast of Iceland directly east to 6 degrees west.
Salinity of the water column; Temperature of the water column
CTD; discrete water samplers
The aim of WOCE was to gather extensive and accurate data on ocean currents and hydrographic conditions and chemical processes through a five year period. The data shall be used in models on the hydrographic conditions of the sea and for ocean currents and their diversibility with the aim to use the models in connection with possible meteorological changes. The Nordic countries participated in the project as a group under the name Nordic-WOCE. The focused on the northern most part of the North-Atlantic, specifically the ocean around Iceland and the Faeroe Islands. The Icelandic research focused on two standard sections, one in the Greenland Strait, and the other one East of Iceland from the coast to about 6 degrees west.
