Chukchi Beaufort Circulation Study
Our overall goal is to provide an improved understanding of the physical oceanography of the Northeastern Chukchi shelf and exchanges between the Chukchi/Beaufort shelves and the adjacent basin by synthesizing new and existing data sets. Field components consist of drifters, gliders (AUVs), high-frequency radars (HFRs), a meteorological buoy, a high-resolution cruise survey, and year-round moorings.
