KV Svalbard cruise north of Svalbard

This is the first INTAROS cruise for deployment of oceanographic, acoustic and seismological instruments which will operate for about a year. The deployment will be done north of Svalbard extending from the shelf towards the deep Nansen Basin along 22 E. The INTAROS mooring array will complement the A-TWAIN oceanographic moorings at 32 E. The data from the moorings will be supported by an oceanographic section along the array. The cruise also includes biogeochemical measurements, light and microstructure measurements.

Cruise leader is Hanne Sagen, NERSC.
