This program has improved understanding of the processes governing the sea state and air-sea interactions of the Arctic Ocean, with applications to improve Arctic and global predictions. Field data collected using SWIFT buoys and a research vessel have been used to test models for wave-ice interactions, as well as ocean mixing and atmospheric coupling. A comprehensive dataset has been assembled, including quality control and merging of geospatial data.
