Methods & Procedures

Procedures and methodology used for, e.g., sampling and sample storage, sample pretreatment, extraction and analysis, including which laboratories are involved, references to methods employed, etc.

Atmosphere: • air temperature, • air humidity, • type and amount of clouds, • atmosphere pressure, • wind structure, • visual range, • atmosphere phenomena. Sea: • wave height and direction, • characteristics of surf, • sea level, • tidal characteristics, • surface water temperature and salinity, • characteristics of ice cover. Observations – every 6 or 12 hours (salinity observations – daily, characteristics of ice cover – daily or less).

Additional Information

Is this a bi- AND multi-lateral project (i.e. a project involving cooperation between different countries)?
