Workshop 2
Arctic-Sub-Arctic interactions


Kenneth F. Drinkwater (Norway)
Thomas Haine (USA)

This workshop will build on the work of the Arctic-Subarctic Ocean Fluxes (ASOF) community that has focused on quantifying the fluxes around the Arctic and the successful IPY session on Arctic-Subarctic connections: Ecosystems and biodiversity at the Oslo IPY Conference in June of 2010. It will bring together several disperse groups that are studying these fluxes and their biophysical effects, including: ESSAS that has concentrated on the Subarctic and the effects on the marine biota, especially fish; those working on the benthic-pelagic coupling and the biogeochemistry in the Barents and the Greenland shelves; those looking at the interaction between the Chukchi Sea and the western Bering Sea; scientists who during the IPY studied the effects of the Bering Sea on the Western Arctic; and other interested scientists. The object is to identify the gaps in our knowledge and to highlight what research can be carried out over the next few years to fill some of these gaps in our understanding of the effects of the interactions between the Arctic and Sub-Arctic and to coordinate the research on these issues. Areas of interest include physical, biogeochemical, and food web studies.
