  author={Timothy P. McGeehan and Wieslaw Maslowski},
6 [1] This study examined the 1979–2004 volume and freshwater fluxes through the 7 Canadian Arctic Archipelago (CAA) and into the Labrador Sea using a high resolution 8 (!9 km) coupled ice-ocean model of the pan-Arctic region to provide a reference, 9 compare with limited observational estimates, and investigate control mechanisms of 10 this exchange. The 26-year mean volume and freshwater fluxes through Nares Strait 11 were 0.77 Sv " 0.17 Sv and 10.38 mSv " 1.67 mSv respectively, while those…

The dynamics of a changing arctic ocean

The Arctic Ocean is undergoing a period of rapid transition, and many different aspects of its environment (ocean, sea ice, and atmosphere) are changing faster than has ever previously been observed.



The circulation and fluxes from the Arctic into the North Atlantic Ocean 1979-2002 model results

Abstract : The recent decreasing trend of sea ice cover in the Arctic region and its projected future reduction has direct implications for the global thermohaline circulation and the U.S. Navy. This

Impact of flow through the Canadian Archipelago and Bering Strait on the North Atlantic and Arctic circulation: An ocean modelling study

An ocean general‐circulation model with an orthogonal curvilinear grid is presented, with the grid north pole over Greenland to achieve improved resolution in the Greenland and Labrador Seas. The

An Observational Estimate of Volume and Freshwater Flux Leaving the Arctic Ocean through Nares Strait

Abstract The Arctic Ocean is an important link in the global hydrological cycle, storing freshwater and releasing it to the North Atlantic Ocean in a variable fashion as pack ice and freshened

On climatological mass, heat, and salt transports through the Barents Sea and Fram Strait from a pan-Arctic coupled ice-ocean model simulation

[1] The northward flow of Atlantic Water via the Barents Sea and Fram Strait is modeled, and climatological volume, heat, and salt fluxes into the Arctic Ocean are investigated. We argue that

Spatial continuity of measured seawater and tracer fluxes through Nares Strait, a dynamically wide channel bordering the Canadian Archipelago

Freshwater delivered as precipitation and runoff to the North Pacific and Arctic oceans returns to the Atlantic principally via the Canadian polar shelf and Fram Strait. It is conveyed as ice or

Monitoring the volume, freshwater and heat fluxes passing through Lancaster sound in the Canadian arctic archipelago

Abstract A research project, consisting of instrumentation development and mooring work, has monitored the volume, heat and freshwater fluxes passing through Lancaster Sound, one of the three main

Observing and interpreting the seasonal variability of the oceanographic fluxes passing through Lancaster Sound of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago

As part of the Arctic/Sub-Arctic Ocean Flux (ASOF) and the International Polar Year (IPY) programs, a research project consisting of mooring and analysis work has studied the ocean and ice fluxes

Atmospheric forcing on the Canadian Arctic Archipelago freshwater outflow and implications for the Labrador Sea variability

The variability of the freshwater export through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago (CAA) is analyzed using a hindcast simulation forced by surface atmospheric forcing from the ERA40 reanalysis

The effects of the water flow through the Canadian Archipelago in a global ice‐ocean model

Numerical experiments are conducted with a global ice‐ocean model in order to evaluate the influence of the water flow from the Arctic Ocean to Baffin Bay through the Canadian Archipelago on the
