 ePIC: The East Greenland Current and its contribution to the Denmark Strait overflow
These water masses are already in the Fram Strait and are dense enough to contribute to the Denmark Strait overflow and to the North Atlantic Deep Water.
In 1998 RV "Polarstern" and RV "Valdivia" occupied hydrographic sections on the Greenland continental slope from the Fram Strait to south of the Denmark Strait, crossing the East Greenland Current at nine different locations.
No distinct contribution from the Iceland Sea was observed in the Denmark Strait but the temperature reduction of the warm core of the East Greenland Current just north of the strait could partly have been caused by mixing with the colder Iceland Sea Arctic Intermediate Water.

Serrezes (1995) storm tracking algorithm is optimized to track cyclones over Denmark Strait and along the west coast of Greenland using both the ECMWF Reanalysis mean sea level pressure field from 1979 to 1993 (ERA-15) and the ECMWF TOGA high resolution mean sea level pressure field from 1985 to 2000.
It is found that cyclone activity along Denmark Strait is highly correlated with NAO indices, especially in winter.
Along the west coast of Greenland, due to the different sources of cyclones from those passing Denmark Strait, cyclone activity does not show a high correlation with NAO indices.

The availability of a new local geoid as well as new global ocean tide model derived from the T/P mission provides a new basis for a determination of the quasi-stationary sea surface topography with high accuracy.
By assuming that the flow can be decomposed in a constant baroclinic component and a time varying barotropic component, measurements of variations in the sea surface heights from the T/P satellite can be used to infer variations in the transport through the Denmark Strait.
Furthermore, results from cruises during Nordic WOCE in the Denmark Strait and new dynamic topographic charts based on hydrography measurements during the Nordic WOCE campaign (1992-1994) will be included in the evaluation.

 HAFRANNSÓKNASTOFNUNIN, HYDROGRAPHIC CRUISE REPORT B02-98
The Kögur section was incomplete due to drift-ice conditions in the Denmark Strait area.
Thus the hydrographic conditions in Icelandic waters were quite favorable in February-March 1998 except in the Denmark Strait area.
The overall results of interest for the VEINS project are those conditions in the Denmark Strait area and a relatively weak transport of fresh water from the north within the East Icelandic Current, but on the other hand the general strong input of Atlantic water from the south was quite pronounced.
