Abstract : This project has the following major objectives: (1) Facilitating the consolidation and dissemination of the scientific results of the Arctic Nuclear Waste Assessment Program (ANWAP). (2) Helping to ensure that chemical oceanographic data from the Arctic Ocean that was collected by the Former Soviet Union (FSU) does not disappear with the collapse of some of the scientific infrastructure in the FSU. (3) Introducing new instrumentation for autonomously collecting chemical oceanographic data from the Arctic Ocean and its adjacent seas. During the second year of this three year project, effort devoted towards objective 1 has included: (1) Finalizing a manuscript for the Oceanographic Society Magazine that describes the ANWAP program and its initial results (Edson, et al. in press.) (2) Attending the ANWAP investigators' workshop that was held this spring at Snowbird, Utah. (3) Beginning to organize a volume of Marine Chemistry that will be devoted to ANWAP results.
