Abstract : The 1994 proposal to ONR consisted of 2 inter-related approaches: (1) to clarify Arctic export fluxes with reference to the halothermal dynamics of the Arctic Basin environment; and (2) to develop understanding of the Sea of Okhotsk taking a two-pronged approach: classic ice-ocean-hydrography research and generation of a resource-predictable model.
