Arctic System Science/OAII/Arctic Ocean Section

Project Description
Ocean-Atmosphere-Ice Interactions (OAII) research seeks to understand
the arctic marine environment and its role in climate and global
change. The arctic marine environment is an interactive system
comprising the water, ice, air, biota, dissolved chemicals, and
sediments of the Arctic Ocean and adjacent seas. Through feedback
processes that are only partially understood, this system has a
significant impact on global climate, and in turn is highly sensitive
to environmental perturbations originating elsewhere.
