Arctic System Science/OAII/Northeast Water Polynya

Project Description
This project is part of an integrated scientific investigation to
study the properties of the Arctic ocean, atmosphere, sea-ice and
biology in the Northeast Water (NEW) Polynya, which occurs near
northeastern Greenland, in order to gain an integrated understanding
of Arctic shelf-slope processes. This element of the NEW program will
evaluate the magnitude and temporal variability of biologically
produced large particulate organic material, its flux to the benthos,
and its fate using a variety of complimentary experimental techniques.
