Abstract:

Our long-term research goals are to understand the circulation and physical properties of the high-latitude ocean, both quantitatively and mechanistically, and to do so in a global context. We also seek to understand the effects of physical processes in the ocean on the ice cover, biology, and chemistry of the marine environment. The variability of that environment is a special focus and concern.
