General Information

Name
FRAMZY 2009 - Drift buoys experiment in the Fram Strait
Acronym
UNI_HH_MI_FRAMZY2009
Project
UNI_HH_MI_fielddata (Field Data of the Meteorological Institute, University of Hamburg)
Summary
The field drift buoys experiment FRAMZY 2009 consisted of the deployment and tracking of an array of 7 drifting autonomous buoys, of which one did not transmit values. The experiment aimed at the measurement of the sea ice drift in the Fram Strait and its relation to the atmospheric forcing, primarily to that by cyclones. The buoys were deployed in October 2009 in the Fram Strait region and sampled data until February 2010.

FRAMZY 2009 was the last one in a series of five field experiments (1999,2002,2007,2008) carried out in the frame of the Collaborative Research Centre 512 (Cyclones and the North Atlantic Climate System) funded by the German Science Foundation.
