The oceanographic component of the AIDJEX Lead Experiment was designed to provide information on the mechanical and thermodynamic processes active in the mixed layer of the Arctic Ocean that are directly attributable to the presence of open leads. Four deployments were made, the first and third to large floes of sea ice, the second and fourth to leads. The oceanographic and atmospheric experiments were to have been performed simultaneously on both edges of leads at the same locations so that heat and salt flux calculations could be compared and subsidiary tasks shared by both projects.
