arrow OBJECTIVES

The overarching goal of the proposed study as an element of the Arctic Observing Network is to compile a cohesive picture of the climatic changes in the Eurasian and Makarov basins (EMB) of the Arctic Ocean, with particular focus on understanding three major observational targets:

  • Target #1: Along-slope Atlantic Water (AW) transport by the boundary currents.
  • Target #2: Interaction of AW branches with shelf waters, deep basin interior and upper ocean.
  • Target #3: EMB indications of changes in the upper ocean circulation.
