Our long term goal is to understand the dynamic and thermodynamic processes causing changes in the velocity and density structure of the upper Arctic Ocean. For example we seek to understand the heat and mass balance of the mixed layer. In light of recent changes in the upper ocean structure, our long-term goals are shifting partly toward a better understanding of large scale changes and their connection to global scale forcing.
