A high-resolution mooring array was deployed at the edge of the continental shelf in the Beaufort Sea as a part of the western Arctic Shelf-Basin Interactions Program, a multidisciplinary experiment that was designed to study the communication between the continental shelf and interior basin. Eight moorings were positioned along a section crossing the shelfbreak and upper slope in two consecutive year-long deployments, spanning the period August 2002 through September 2004. Seven of the eight moorings housed conductivity/temperature/depth moored profilers that sampled 2-4 times per day, amassing close to 3000 profiles during the two-year study period. This report documents the collection, calibration, and quality control of this moored profiler data.

Goldner, Daniel R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-06)Efforts to understand the Arctic system have recently focused on the role in local and global circulation of waters from the Arctic shelf seas. In this study, steady-state exchanges between the Arctic shelves and the ...
Eddy transport of organic carbon and nutrients from the Chukchi Shelf : impact on the upper halocline of the western Arctic Ocean Mathis, Jeremy T.; Pickart, Robert S.; Hansell, Dennis A.; Kadko, David; Bates, Nicholas R. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-05-04)In September 2004 a detailed physical and chemical survey was conducted on an anticyclonic, cold-core eddy located seaward of the Chukchi Shelf in the western Arctic Ocean. The eddy had a diameter of ∼16 km and was centered ...
Arctic decadal variability from an idealized atmosphere-ice-ocean model: 1. Model description, calibration, and validation Dukhovskoy, Dmitry S.; Johnson, Mark; Proshutinsky, Andrey (American Geophysical Union, 2006-06-20)This paper describes a simple “multibox” model of the Arctic atmosphere-ice-ocean system. The model consists of two major modules (an Arctic module and a Greenland Sea module) and several sub-modules. The Arctic module ...
