ID-127 :   Mooring observations in the Barrow Canyon and southern Chukchi Sea

Type

FIELDWORK

Research/Observation Title

Mooring observations in the Barrow Canyon and southern Chukchi Sea

Science Summary (common)

We deployed four moorings in the Chukchi Sea. One mooring was deployed in the Southern Chukchi sea (SCH-16). Three moorings were deployed in the Barrow Canyon (BCE-16, BCC-16, BCW-16) at the locations which are almost the same as those of the deployed mooring. The purpose of mooring measurements at the Barrow Canyon is to monitor the variations of volume, heat and fresh water fluxes of Pacific Water. The purpose of mooring measurements at the Southern Chukchi sea where the biological activity is extremely high and is called a biological hot spot is to understand the ocean environment and its annual changes maintaining the hot spot.
