Abstract:

Oceanographic measurements were made in the Chuchi Sea along the Alaskan coast and at an ice camp in the shore-fast ice northeast of Barrow to study the water exchange along the coast and the influence of the Barrow Canyon. Phenomena discussed include solar warming in the shallows, the drainage of high-salinity water through the Barrow Canyon into the Arctic Ocean, and the counterflow of warmer water from the temperature-maximum layer of the ocean onto the shelf.
