  • Freshwater composition of the waters off southeast Greenland and their link to the Arctic Ocean 

    Sutherland, David A.; Pickart, Robert S.; Jones, E. Peter; Azetsu-Scott, Kumiko; Eert, A. Jane; Olafsson, Jon (American Geophysical Union, 2009-05-27)
    The freshwater composition of waters on the southeast Greenland shelf and slope are described using a set of high-resolution transects occupied in summer 2004, which included hydrographic, velocity, nutrient, and chemical ...
  • Mechanisms of Pacific Summer Water variability in the Arctic's Central Canada Basin 

    Timmermans, Mary-Louise; Proshutinsky, Andrey; Golubeva, Elena; Jackson, Jennifer M.; Krishfield, Richard A.; McCall, Margaret; Platov, G. A.; Toole, John M.; Williams, William J.; Kikuchi, Takashi; Nishino, Shigeto (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-11-10)
    Pacific Water flows northward through Bering Strait and penetrates the Arctic Ocean halocline throughout the Canadian Basin sector of the Arctic. In summer, Pacific Summer Water (PSW) is modified by surface buoyancy fluxes ...
  • Pathways of Pacific water across the Chukchi Sea : a numerical model study 

    Winsor, Peter; Chapman, David C. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-03-02)
    Pathways of Pacific Water flowing from the North Pacific Ocean through Bering Strait and across the Chukchi Sea are investigated using a two-dimensional barotropic model. In the no-wind case, the flow is driven only by a ...
  • Recent changes in the freshwater composition east of Greenland 

    de Steur, Laura; Pickart, Robert S.; Torres, Daniel J.; Valdimarsson, Heoinn (John Wiley & Sons, 2015-04-01)
    Results from three hydrographic surveys across the East Greenland Current between 2011 and 2013 are presented with focus on the freshwater sources. End-member analysis using salinity, δ18O, and nutrient data shows that ...
  • The western Arctic boundary current at 152°W : structure, variability, and transport 

    Nikolopoulos, Anna; Pickart, Robert S.; Fratantoni, Paula S.; Shimada, Koji; Torres, Daniel J.; Jones, E. Peter (2008-01-16)
    From August 2002 to September 2004 a high-resolution mooring array was maintained across the western Arctic boundary current in the Beaufort Sea north of Alaska. The array consisted of profiling instrumentation, providing ...
