Abstract:

An assessment is made of each component of the heat budgets of the surface and of the earth--atmosphere system in the central Arctic, both for an ice-covered ocean and for an ice-free ocean. The annual patterns of atmospheric heat loss for both conditions are obtained as residuals the relation of these patterns to general atmospheric circulation and glacier accumulation is discussed.
