Abstract:

The long-term goal is to develop a low frequency Arctic ambient noise model to predict extreme loud quiet noise events due the presence or absence of storms. The Objectives are to determine the internal stress of the ice canopy covering the Arctic Ocean due to convergent atmospheric forcing and relate this to energy dissipation rate due to ridge building, the major source of ambient noise in the frequency regime under investigation.
