SESSION HE002 - Arctic Ocean Changes and Processes
Conveners: Benjamin Rabe, Ying-Chih Fang, Alexandra Jahn, and Laura Whitmore

This session aims to foster discussion between pan-arctic, regional, observational, modeling, and societal activities in Arctic Ocean research. Changes in Arctic Ocean surface temperature, sea ice, and ocean circulation are ongoing and may have regional or global forcing,responses, and economic implications. Phenomena such as Atlantification and Pacification highlight the importance of both regional processes as well as the connection to the rest of the world’s oceans. Efforts in the form of large-scale hydrographic surveys and process studies – as well as satellite interpretation, earth system, and regional ocean modeling – have contributed to our understanding of climate responses and drivers and the Arctic Ocean’s role in the global climate system. Observations now cover several decades of physical, chemical and biological variables, thanks to various observational programs that provide the context for multidecadal changes. Coordinated modeling efforts and process studies are also crucial to understand these changes. Conveners invite contributions from studies investigating small-, mesoscale, regional, or pan-Arctic domains or the subarctic-arctic connection. Interdisciplinary studies of the atmosphere-sea ice-ocean system, chemical processes, and the ecosystem are invited. Conveners also welcome contributions related to Arctic Ocean research paradigms, outreach activities and links to societal issues.
