Greenland Sea Project

The Greenland Sea Project (GSP) was aimed at observing and modelling the atmospheric, ice, oceanic and biological processes relevant to understanding the role of the Nordic Seas in the climate system. The project was developed and coordinated under the auspices of the Arctic Ocean Sciences Board (AOSB) and was co-sponsored by ICES. It was carried out by national surveys, which resulted in new data sets that cover spatial scales from event via season to several years.

GSP
The distribution of the 1589 stations worked in connection with GSP.

The Greenland Sea Project dataset is available as a compressed comma seperated file.

Summary details of the GSP cruises, including information on the profile data that have been collected, and whether or not ICES have received these data, are listed below.
