Abstract:

A joint U.S. -Canadian midwinter oceanographic expedition was made to the waters north of the Greenland-Scotland ridges aboard the Canadian scientific vessel CSS Hudson during February-April 1982, principally in the region between Han Mayen and Spitsbergen, The goals were 1 to observe conditions in the surface waters in winter, especially in the Greenland Sea and in the northern Norwegian Sea 2 to exploit useful tracer signals such as salinity, dissolved oxygen, dissolved silica and other nutrients, tritium, freons, and isotopes of cesium and 3 to map regional variations in the various water masses.
