Joint Western Arctic Climate Studies (1)

Science Summary (common)

[purpose] Arctic climate studies focusing on recent anomalous Arctic changes (IPY Arctic cruise) [outline] Subsurface moorings are distributed on the major pathway of Pacific Water on the Chukchi Sea to evaluate the volume, heat, and freshwater transportation from the Pacific Ocean into the Arctic Ocean. Hydrographic sections across the Canada and Makarov Basins(CTD, XCTD, water sampling), atmospheric observation, plancton sampling, core sampling
