Long-term OceaNoGraphic monitoring in HORnsuNd region (LONGHORN)

As results of previouse project proved to be valuable to scientific community gathered round PPS in Hornsund we decided to estabilish long-term monitoring program of oceanographic, ambient noise, shore zone, and sea ice in Horsund. It is direct descendant of previously realised projects realised in PPS Hornsund.

Summary

Long-term OceaNoGraphic monitoring in HORnsuNd region (LONGHORN) has been realized since 2015. It is a continuation of previous project leaded by Department of Polar and Marine Researchers Institute of Geophysics Polish Academy of Sciences (DPMR IG PAS). This monitoring has been implemented to benefit scientific communities interested in processes which undergo in fjords, especially on the border between marine, glacial and coastal environment. Still a little is known about those processes, even though they are causally related to the observed climate change. However, the analysis of those processes is very problematic. Lack of long-term datasets from fjords with glaciers is one of relevant problems. Data are typically obtained during research cruises or short-time measurement campaigns, usually performed in spring and summer. Location of the Stanislaw Siedlecki Polish Polar Station (PPS) in Hornsund gives opportunity to establish long-term all-year oceanographic monitoring. In Hornsund, two sets of oceanographic and associated photographic monitoring are in progress. First set of oceanographic monitoring is executed by PPS staff. It includes: - measurements of temperature, salinity, turbidity and dissolved oxygen in depth profiles in stations covering the whole Hornsund area during spring, summer and autumn seasons; - measurements of temperature, salinity, turbidity and dissolved oxygen in depth profiles in Hansbukta (forefield of Hansbreen), all-year; - analyses of suspended sediment concentration and loss on ignition from water samples taken in depth profiles in front of Paierlbreen, Muhlbacherbreeb, Storbreen, Hornbreen, Svalisbreen, Mendeleevbreen, Samarinbreen, and from water surface in stations covering the whole Hornsund area during spring, summer and autumn seasons; - analyses of suspended sediment concentration and loss on ignition from water samples taken in depth profile and from water surface in Hansbukta (forefield of Hansbreen), all-year; - analyses of sediment flux and loss on ignition from sediment traps deployed in Hansbukta (forefield of Hansbreen) during spring, summer and autumn seasons; Second set of oceanographic monitoring is realized via autonomous underwater buoys set up by DPMR IG PAS researchers through SCUBA diving. It includes: - temperature and salinity all-year registration in Isbjornhamna or Hansbukta and in one other bay of choice; - wave and tide all-year registration in Isbjornhamna or Hansbukta and in one other bay of choice; - ambient noise acoustic all-year registration in Hansbukta (forefield of Hansbreen); Autonomous photographic monitoring is realized via cameras localized on Ariekammen, Fugleberget, Fannytoppen, Baranowskiodden and Fuglebergsletta. They are used in analysis of sea state and ice conditions in Isbjornhamna and Hansbukta. These cameras are maintained by PPS staff.
