The Irminger Current mooring array consists of 5 subsurface ocean moorings in the Irminger Current on the Reykjanes Ridge in the North Atlantic Ocean. The second high-resolution data set of oceanographic variables from instrumentation on these moorings was collected from 15 July 2015 to 6 August 2016. The moorings are named IC0, IC1, IC2, IC3, and IC4 going from west to east. The Irminger Current mooring array is part of the international Overturning of the Subpolar North Atlantic Program (OSNAP, www.o-snap.org) which runs from 2014 to at least 2018. The data set consists ocean temperature, salinity, current velocities, pressure and time. Variables were collected at different time intervals, varying from 5 minutes to 1 hour. The data have been calibrated and quality controlled. The data and metadata are stored in NetCDF files following the Climate Forecast (CF) conventions, see http://cfconventions.org/
