Bering Strait Mooring Data 1990-2002 [Woodgate, et. al.]



This is an archive of data from moorings deployed in Bering Strait from autumn 1990 to summer 2002, with annual replacement of moorings. Only during the field year 1996-97 were there no measurements. Mooring sponsorship came variously from NOAA, NSF, or ONR, depending on the year. Sill depth in the two Bering Strait channels is approximately 50-55 m. These moorings typically mounted an Aanderaa RCM current meter 5-10 m above the bottom and a Sea-Bird Temperature - Conductivity recorder 1 m deeper. They were replaced annually in late summer, so that each file contains the data from one instrument-year. The listed year is the year that particular mooring was deployed.
