  • Beaufort Gyre freshwater reservoir : state and variability from observations 

    Proshutinsky, Andrey; Krishfield, Richard A.; Timmermans, Mary-Louise; Toole, John M.; Carmack, Eddy C.; McLaughlin, Fiona A.; Williams, William J.; Zimmermann, Sarah; Itoh, Motoyo; Shimada, Koji (American Geophysical Union, 2009-06-24)
    We investigate basin-scale mechanisms regulating anomalies in freshwater content (FWC) in the Beaufort Gyre (BG) of the Arctic Ocean using historical observations and data collected in 2003–2007. Specifically, the mean ...
  • Halocline structure in the Canada Basin of the Arctic Ocean 

    Shimada, Koji; Itoh, Motoyo; Nishino, Shigeto; McLaughlin, Fiona A.; Carmack, Eddy C.; Proshutinsky, Andrey (American Geophysical Union, 2005-02-05)
    We examine the varieties and spatial distributions of Pacific and Eastern Arctic origin halocline waters in the Canada Basin using 2002–2003 hydrographic data. The halocline structure in the Canada Basin is different from ...
  • Pacific Ocean inflow : influence on catastrophic reduction of sea ice cover in the Arctic Ocean 

    Shimada, Koji; Kamoshida, Takashi; Itoh, Motoyo; Nishino, Shigeto; Carmack, Eddy C.; McLaughlin, Fiona A.; Zimmermann, Sarah; Proshutinsky, Andrey (American Geophysical Union, 2006-04-21)
    The spatial pattern of recent ice reduction in the Arctic Ocean is similar to the distribution of warm Pacific Summer Water (PSW) that interflows the upper portion of halocline in the southern Canada Basin. Increases in ...
  • Penetration of the 1990s warm temperature anomaly of Atlantic Water in the Canada Basin 

    Shimada, Koji; McLaughlin, Fiona A.; Carmack, Eddy C.; Proshutinsky, Andrey; Nishino, Shigeto; Itoh, Motoyo (American Geophysical Union, 2004-10-16)
    Penetration of the 1990s warm temperature anomaly (WTA) of the Fram Strait branch of Atlantic Water (FSBW) in the Canada Basin is described using available temperature, salinity, and velocity data. The core temperatures ...
  • Water properties, heat and volume fluxes of Pacific water in Barrow Canyon during summer 2010 

    Itoh, Motoyo; Pickart, Robert S.; Kikuchi, Takashi; Fukamachi, Yasushi; Ohshima, Kay I.; Simizu, Daisuke; Arrigo, Kevin R.; Vagle, Svein; He, Jianfeng; Ashjian, Carin J.; Mathis, Jeremy T.; Nishino, Shigeto; Nobre, Carolina (Elsevier, 2015-04-25)
    Over the past few decades, sea ice retreat during summer has been enhanced in the Pacific sector of the Arctic basin, likely due in part to increasing summertime heat flux of Pacific-origin water from the Bering Strait. ...
