Marginal Ice Zone: Biogeochemical Sampling with Gliders

The long-term goal is to understand the distribution of phytoplankton and particulate organic carbon in the Arctic under the ice and in the marginal ice zone, as well as to understand feedbacks between phytoplankton and ice melt. The project specific goals are to develop biogeochemical and optical proxies for glider optics to use the proxies to project biogeochemical and optical measurements from the ship to the larger spatial scales sampled by the gliders in open water, in the marginal ice zone, and under the ice and to build collaborations with Arctic scientists at KOPRI.
