NPEO 2014 Aircraft CTD-Chemistry Survey

 

The NPEO 2014 hydrographic survey consisted of fourteen stations, attempting to measure CTD transects from the Pole along 0 - 180° and along 90°East Longitudes as far as logistically feasible. The last six stations (Casts 9-14) attempt to extend the Switchyard Project transect between the Pole and Alert. Similar sections were recorded during NPEO 2001, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. Three casts were recorded at at the Barneo logistics camp/runway.

Accumulated temperature and salinity profiles show the Historical Record of North Pole Hydrography since the 1950s.   Closely related projects are described at PSC Hydrographic Climatology and the Freshwater Switchyard of the Arctic Ocean.

Data from the NPEO aerial hydrographic and chemistry surveys are permanently archived at the Cooperative Arctic Data and Information Service (CADIS) and Arctic System Science (ARCSS) Data Archive.  These data plus certain preliminary data sets may be obtained via FTP at this website.
