Summary
Abstract: The Surface Heat Budget of the Arctic Ocean (SHEBA) was initiated to
gather research data in the Arctic in order to improve how Global
Climate Models (GCMs) simulate the present and future effects of
global change in this region. Between January 1997 and November 1998
the multi-national science team carried out the three components of
this project. The first component was a field project staged from a
13-month drifting sea ice camp in the Arctic Ocean. The other
components included the gathering of satellite remotely sensed data
and modelling data.
