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 Kongsfjorden 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. The observatory layout is available in the mooring diagram provided.
