Sea ice cores were collected at 71.2944˚N, 156.7153˚W and 71.3729˚N, 156.5073˚W in May 2017 and at 71.4730˚N, 156.7294˚W in May 2018. Sea ice cores were drilled with a MARK II ice auger (Kovacs Enterprise). The cores were sectioned immediately after collection with a clean rust-proof, custom alloy bow saw in the field in 5 cm sections and each was collected in sterile Whirlpak® bags. Core sections were melted at room temperature before volumes were allocated for nutrient, water isotope, and bulk salinity measurements. Analytical measurements were made upon sample return to the University of Washington and to the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Associated temperature profile data were acquired from the nearby UAF Sea Ice Mass Balance site.
