Abstract

The report documents seven current meter deployments in Faroese waters in 2017 – 2018 deployed within the FARMON project, which is funded by the Danish Energy Agency as part of the Arctic Climate Support Programme.
Three of the moorings were located at standard (Nordic WOCE) sites (NWFB, NWFC and NWNB) while one was deployed on the southern part of the Faroe Current (NWNI) and one (NWNJ) at larger depths on the Faroe Current section. Additionally, two moorings were deployed on the eastern part of the Faroe Plateau to monitor the recirculation of the Faroe Current into the Faroe Shetland Channel (TNGX and TNGY). The deployments are listed in Tables 1 and 2 together with one additional mooring (NWNK) that was deployed at large depths below the Faroe Current.
The data from this additional mooring are also reported here.
At all sites except NWNI and NWNK, RDI ADCPs were placed in the top of single-point moorings. At site NWNI a “shallowwater” rig was used, where an RDI ADCP was placed on the bottom inside a protective aluminium frame, while at site NWNK an Aanderaa RCM9 current meter was on the mooring.
