Meteorological buoy measurements in the Iceland Sea, 2007–2009
Guðrún Nína Petersen Icelandic Meteorological Office, Bústaðavegi 9, 108 Reykjavík, Iceland
Abstract. The Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO) conducted meteorological buoy measurements in the central Iceland Sea in the time period 2007–2009, specifically in the northern Dreki area on the southern segment of the Jan Mayen Ridge. Due to difficulties in deployment and operations, in situ measurements in this region are sparse. Here the buoy, deployment and measurements are described with the aim of giving a future user of the data set information that is as comprehensive as possible. The data set has been quality-checked, suspect data removed and the data set made publicly available from PANGAEA Data Publisher (https://doi.org/10.1594/PANGAEA.876206).

Short summary
The Icelandic Meteorological Office conducted meteorological buoy measurements in the central Iceland Sea in the time period 2007–2009, specifically in the northern Dreki area on the southern segment of the Jan Mayen Ridge. Direct measurements in this region are difficult and costly and thus few data sets available. This is therefore in many ways a unique data set. The data are now publicly available and here the deployment and the data are described for any future users.
