Abstract : The possibility of anomalous concentrations of dissolved atmospheric gas in certain Arctic Ocean waters is theorized. The unique geometry of the Arctic Basin and its permanent ice cover create a gigantic 'zone-refiner' that could lead to this condition. The application of a previously developed NRL instrument to an investigation of this phenomenon is indicated and recommended. (Author)
