This data set contains velocity measurements of high spatial resolution which were collected during a shipboard survey onboard RV Knorr in September 2011. The survey included transects across the northern slope of Iceland and the Iceland-Faroe Ridge. The sections are named A to E starting with the north-westernmost transect.
Velocities were measured using an upward- and downward-facing lowered acoustic Doppler current profiler (LADCP) system mounted on the rosette. The LADCP data were processed using the LADCP Processing Software Package from the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (Thurnherr 2010, 2018). Following the processing, the barotropic tides were removed from the velocity data set by applying an updated version of the regional tidal model of Egbert and Erofeeva (2002), which has a resolution of 1/60°.
