Terrestrial, atmospheric and oceanic processes involved in the freshwater budget of the Arctic Ocean

PI: Joel Finnis
Institution: University of Colorado, Boulder
Additional Investigators: Andrew Barrett, Marika Holland, Mark Serreze
We are involved in several projects studying the climatology of and relationships between terrestrial, atmospheric and oceanic processes involved in the freshwater budget of the Arctic Ocean, using both CCSM3 output and a variety of available observations. We're interested in using output from other models used in the IPCC AR4 to complement this work, assessing our results within the context of available model estimates of budget terms and modeled responses to climate change. Examples of specific areas of interest include basin-scale hydrology, identification of synoptic patterns associated with hydrologic variability, water mass structure within the Arctic Ocean, and interbasin oceanic exchanges of freshwater. Data of interest includes mean monthly and daily model output from control, 20th century, and increasing CO2 model simulations.
