MOSIDEO/CIRFA Oil-in-Ice Experiments

Two projects join forces to investigate the microscopic behavior of oil in sea ice and the detection of oil as it approaches the surface during melt. Participants from the Research Council of Norway (RCN) PETROMAKS2 project MOSIDEO and from SFI CIRFA will perform experiments at the HSVA Arctic Environmental Test Basin (AETB) from 14 Mar through 4 Apr 2017.


Temperature measurements are available as Excel 2007 spreadsheet MOSIDEO_CIRFA_HSVA_2017_consolidated_data.xlsx and as Python/numpy file (npy).

Recent measurements (04 Apr 2017, 07:05 CET):

  • Battery Voltage: 12.1 V
  • Logger Temperature: 9.8 °C
