Understanding freshwater changes in the Arctic ocean

Abstract:

By enforcing a strong stratification at the ocean surface, freshwater is a key determiner of the physical and biogeochemical dynamics of the Arctic Ocean. In addition, fluxes of Arctic freshwater to the Atlantic have the potential to impact the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, with global implications for climate. The Arctic Ocean is understood to be freshening, but our grasp of its freshwater variability---in time and space---is hampered by the short duration and sparsity of o...
