The mooring was suspended from the surface by a steel cable from a wooden hut through a hole in the sea ice. Bottom depth was > 200 m. All sensors were deployed at 20 m depth. The mooring was instrumented with a suite of sensors to record time series of temperature, salinity, pH, and tide. Temperature and salinity were measured using a non-pumped conductivity-temperature (CT) MicroCAT sensor (SBE-37 SM; Sea-Bird Electronics) that sampled at 5-min intervals. pH was measured using an autonomous data logger based on a Honeywell Durafet® pH sensor (Martz et al., 2010) and sampled at 1-hr intervals.
