Our aim in this terminal year of our ONR support has been to understand the physics of high-latitude convection, eddies and circulation, using direct observations made as part of the ONR Deep Convection ARI, and subsequently in collaborative surveys with Canadian oceanographers. Of growing importance is the dynamics of fresh water cycled through the atmosphere and terrestrial cryosphere, falling as precipitation, and recycling through sea-ice.
