This work was done as part of the Winter Greenland Sea project from F.S. Polarstern, ARKIX/1 in the Arctic Ocean, and at various sites in the Greenland Sea. There are 147 stations and all of the measurements were taken through an ice cover. The measurements show the effect of a growing and melting ice cover on the near surface hydrographic structure.
