Abstract:

This is a reference document of oceanography, meteorology, sea ice distribution, and climatology. It was prepared for use by the U.S. Coast Guard On-Scene Coordinator in the event of an oil spill in the Chukchi Sea. The oceanography section contains information for bathymetry, circulation, water temperature and salinity, waves, tides, river discharge, and oil spill transport. The meteorology section includes seasonal weather and storm tracks, storm surges, superstructure icing, and wind chill. Climatology includes graphs and text on temperature, precipitation, wind, visibility, and cloudiness. Ice formation includes seasonal formation and drift, concentration, thickness nearshore ice, and freeze up and break-up dates.
