NANSEN - North Atlantic Norwegian Sea Exchange Project, 1986-1989

hydrography and circulation, Iceland Basin,

NANSEN (North Atlantic and Norwegian Sea Exchange) was set up under ICES Council Resolution C.Res 1985/4:9. Its specific objectives were to:

  • study the hydrography and circulation of the Iceland Basin,
  • study the temporal and and spatial variability of the inflows and outflows across the Greenland-Scotland Ridge.

Research Vessel observations in support of NANSEN were collected from 1986 to 1989. All relevant data were managed by the ICES Oceanographic Data Centre (stations) and the British Oceanographic Data Centre (moored instrumentation). The scientific results have been presented at ASC theme sessions and published in ICES Cooperative Research Report No. 225: North Atlantic - Norwegian Sea Exchanges: The ICES NANSEN Project, 1998. Please consult our Publications Page for ordering information.

The NANSEN dataset is available as a compressed comma seperated file.
