Rationale: Water masses properties and volume transports play a key role in the functioning of the Barents Sea ecosystem. Due to unique properties of water masses, the Barents Sea is rich in marine life, being one of the most productive fishing grounds in the world. Monitoring of water mass properties and volume fluxes is of major importance for management and sustainable use of resources of the Sea
