Karrer. covers less than 10% of the world’s oceans and 40% of this sea ice occurs within the Arctic Ocean basin. There are several effects of this sea ice cover on the physical oceanography of the Arctic Ocean and its marginal seas (e.g., Baffin Bay, Hudson Bay, Barents Sea): • The temperature of surface water remains near the freezing point for its.

However, remarkably little is known about the climate or characteristics of the sea ice in this remote and inhospitable region. Here, we use the Pan‐Arctic Ice Ocean Modeling and Assimilation System model to show that the ice cover in the region is very dynamic, with changes occurring at a rate twice that of the Arctic Ocean as a whole.   Remarkably, the Arctic Ocean ice area flux into the CAA ( × 10 3 km 2) was 7 times greater than the – average (23 × 10 3 km 2) and almost double the ice area flux into Nares Strait (87 × 10 3 km 2). Continued warming may result in the CAA becoming a larger outlet for Arctic Ocean ice area loss. Because we wish to focus on regions where ice persistence is marginal, we benchmark against data from ice mass balance (IMB) buoy (ID code: ) deployed in April by the Sea‐Ice Experiment – Dynamic Nature of the Arctic (SEDNA) campaign in the Beaufort Sea [Perovich et al., ], an Arctic location that experienced a dramatic loss.

Long Lin, Hailun He, Decadal variance of summer near-surface temperature maximum in Canada Basin of Arctic Ocean, Tellus A: Dynamic Meteorology and Oceanography, /, 71, 1, (), (). Areas of thin ice and open water in summer lead to enhanced surface heating and can accelerate the summer decay of ice through feedback processes and also lead to the formation of entirely new water masses. Open water in the form of polynyas is an important process regulating the ice‐ocean‐atmosphere fluxes. The sixth edition of Descriptive Physical Oceanography provides an introduction to descriptive physical oceanography for advanced undergraduates and graduate emphasis is on large-scale oceanography, based mainly in observations, with some topics from waves and coastal oceanography also included.   Follow researchers on an icebreaker study the effects of warming and climate change in the Arctic.
