In an attempt to quantify double diffusive heat fluxes in the Arctic Ocean, a temperature microstructure experiment was performed as a part of the North Pole Environmental Observatory (NPEO) field season from the drifting ice station Barneo located in the Cited by: 1. Introduction. The Arctic can, despite its small size (3% of Earth’s surface), affect global climate in many ways. The most well known is the positive albedo-climate feedback, in which melting ice reduces Earth’s albedo, thus allowing more solar heating of the ocean that in turn induces the melting of more ice (Brooks, , Donn and Ewing, , Budkyo, , Kellogg, , Holland and Cited by: 4.

Arctic–Subarctic Ocean Fluxes. Arctic–Subarctic Ocean Fluxes pp we can anticipate changes in fresh water fluxes from the Arctic Ocean. A main motive for trying to determine Arctic Ocean fresh water sources and their distributions is to try to assess the vulnerability of the Atlantic thermohaline circulation to such changes Cited by:   Arctic-Subarctic Ocean Fluxes: Defining the Role of the Northern Seas in Climate Robert R. Dickson The Ocean-Atmosphere-Cryosphere s- tem of the Arctic is of unique importance to the World, its climate and its peoples and is changing rapidly; it is no accident that the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA) was the first comprehensive regional 5/5(1).

[R R Dickson; Jens Meincke; Peter B Rhines;] -- The two-way oceanic exchanges that connect the Arctic and Atlantic oceans through subarctic seas are of fundamental importance to climate. Change may certainly be imposed on the Arctic Ocean from. These fluxes are calculated according to two reference salinities, S = to conform with the majority of estimates reported in the literature, and S = , the salinity of the inflowing Atlantic water, to calculate the freshwater balance of the ‘Arctic Mediterranean’.

The moorings have been monitoring the.   The current warming trends in the Arctic may shove the Arctic system into a seasonally ice-free state not seen for more than one million years. The melting is accelerating, and researchers were unable to identify natural processes that might slow the deicing of the Arctic. Such substantial additional melting of Arctic and Antarctic glaciers and ice sheets would raise the sea level worldwide.

[12] Pacific Waters (PW) are found over roughly half the Arctic Ocean. Averaged over that area (∼5 × 10 6 km 2), the Bering Strait heat flux is 2–4 W/m 2, a significant fraction of Arctic annual mean net surface heat fluxes (−2 to 10 W/m 2, ERA‐40 atmospheric reanalysis [Serreze et al.,Figure 5]).Cited by: Arctic–Subarctic Ocean Fluxes Chapter   January   with  25 Reads  How we measure 'reads' A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and.

The debate about the importance of ocean heat transport to climate : $   Below a very shallow Arctic Ocean thermocline layer (about – m in depth) the circulation is driven primarily by thermohaline processes, such as lateral inflows and outflows.

Observations are recorded within autonomous submerged instruments which must be retrieved to collect data. Surface fluxes at high latitudes are important to processes in the ocean (e.g., deep convection, dynamics of the Southern Ocean and the Greenland–Iceland–Norwegian Seas, water mass transformation), the cryosphere (warming of waters, ice transport, and cloud formation), and the atmosphere (cloud modification of radiative fluxes, feedbacks to Cited by: ASOF is defined as Arctic Subarctic Oceanic Fluxes very rarely.
