Abstract : The Arctic ice dynamics joint experiment is a common purpose and a cooperative effort to understand quantitatively the interaction between the fields of motion of the atmosphere, the pack ice, and the liquid ocean. This understanding is basic to forecasting ice conditions and to assessing variations in surface/atmosphere heat exchange and their relation to variations in general atmospheric circulation.
