As part of the "KROP - Kongsfjorden Rijpfjorden Observatory Programme" UiT The Arctic University of Norway and The Scottish Association for Marine Science maintain marine observatories (moorings) in two high-Arctic fjords in Svalbard: Kongsfjorden and Rijpfjorden. The observatories consists of an array of CTDs, temperature loggers, ADCPs and a sediment trap, in addition to various other instruments or installations that change from year to year. This dataset contains the CTD, PAR and fluorescence data from Rijpfjorden 2017-2018. Fluorescence data is given as raw voltage only, due to calibration and fouling issues. It is meant as an indication of the timing of the phytoplankton bloom, not as absolute chlorophyll a concentration. No post-recovery processing of light data (to correct for fouling) has been performed. On this mooring, settlement plates (wooden plates) to collect wood boring organisms were deployed on top and bottom SBE37. Nothing was found. The observatory layout is available in the mooring diagram provided.
Science publication
No publication: Motivation: The dataset is part of a long-term marine observatory on Svalbard (established 2006) from Kongsfjorden and Rijpfjorden. Data is split into annual archives. It is not possible to assign specific publications to specific datasets, as many publications use parts of the dataset (primary)
