  • Sediment-laden sea ice is widespread over the shallow, wide Siberian Arctic shelves, with off-shelf export from the Laptev and East Siberian Seas contributing substantially to the Arctic Ocean’s sediment budget. By contrast, the North American shelves, owing to their narrow width and greater water depths, have not been deemed as important for basinwide sediment transport by sea ice. Observations over the Chukchi and Beaufort shelves in 2001/02 revealed the widespread occurrence of sediment… CONTINUE READING
