|The next steps
in ADCP analysis and interpretation are shown here. Additional data sets may come from
international GLOBEC partners working in the region (Germany and UK), and
from US LTER cruises. All present
ADCP data sets require further editing.
Once moorings are recovered and analyzed, we will be in a position to
improve our tidal model, with the goal of creating a detided ADCP data
set. We note, however, that we
presently know of no way to remove the inertial variability, and so
need to keep this in mind when interpreting sparse ADCP data from the
|Finally, we will
be extending our studies of mixing, using Ri as a proxy, to the entire survey
area, in an attempt to identify regions that are particularly prone to
turbulent upward fluxes of heat, salt and nutrients into the surface mixed
layer and up to the sea ice and/or atmosphere.
