Abstract : Our long-term goal is to better understand the evolution of heat content in the upper Arctic Ocean within the Seasonal Ice Zone (SIZ), both seasonally during summer warming and fall cooling, and interannually as sea ice retreats and the warming season lengthens. The effort is a contribution to the multi-investigator ONR-sponsored SIZRS project (SIZ Reconnaissance Surveys).
