Abstract:

The long term goal of the ACOUS Project is to provide synoptic year-round observations of decadal scale using acoustic thermometry, of Arctic and Northern Pacific Ocean temperature and Arctic ice cover, which could be influencing regional and global climate change. These measured data will then be assimilated into global climate models to improve their fidelity and predictive capabilities.
