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.
