Abstract:

An open-lead experiment is planned wherein atmospheric and oceanic observations will be made at a newly created lead offshore from Barrow, Alaska. The atmospheric observations will attempt to measure the vertical flux of heat and determine its relation to air-sea temperature difference, fetch, height, and wind speed. The oceanic observations seek to determine the characteristics of the density-driven convection in the vicinity of a lead by measuring the oceanic velocity and density fields.
