ANA04B CTD

In order to monitor the circumpolar deep water (CDW) and associated rapid melting of glaciers in the Amundsen Shelf, three institutes (KOPRI, UGOT, and RU) from Korea, Sweden, and US have launched an international collaboration program. During the 2014 Amundsen Sea cruise (ANA04B) by IBRV Araon, a total of 35 CTD stations were visited on the shelf troughs and near the ice shelf front as well as the polynya. The overall purpose in the field of physical oceanography are: (1) identify the temporal and spatial variation of CDW in Amundsen; (2) estimation of heat transport by CDW intrusion to understand the effect of CDW on the melting of ice shelves.
