PC-2 Winter Process Cruise (WPC): Cruise Report

November 15, 2021


The Winter Process Cruise (WPC) aboard RV Kronprins Haakon (KH2021702) conducted observations on processes that control the position and variability of the polar front in the Northern Barents Sea and the distribution of Arctic and Atlantic water masses. Moreover, the WPC serviced 2 gateway moorings sites (M1 and M4) and collected complementary hydrographic, microstructure and current profiles to detect the winter circulation pattern and the layering structures between the two competing water masses. Meteorological measurements were also made.
