Ziel der Reise / Objectives of Cruise:

The last part of the transit voyage of RV POSEIDON to Troms? (Norway) during summer 2011 was used to pursue and complete ongoing research in the Nordic Seas. To maintain the large-scale monitoring of the Nordic Seas hydrography two Argo-floats were deployed in each of the four basins (Greenland Sea Basin, Lofoten Basin, Norwegian Basin, Iceland Plateau) and CTD-casts were executed for comparison. To observe the way of the deep water from Fram Strait to the Faroer-Bank-Channel Overflow a CTD-section from the Norwegian Basin to the Iceland Plateau was surveyed. The previous observations of hydrography were supplemented by high-resolution sections with an underway-CTD from the centre of the Greenland Sea to the surrounding. Of special interest are mesoscale structures like eddies, intrusions or doublediffusion at the front between the different water masses. These are insufficiently observed in the past. On the east Greenland shelf a mooring array was planned to be recovered. The cruise was also used as practical education for three students of physical oceanography at the University of Hamburg.
