Conference Objectives

This conference will address the high-latitude, in particular arctic and sub-arctic, oceanic processes and how they affect the ocean and the climate. The conference will provide a well-defined focus for oceanographers working in high-latitude oceans to discuss views on the ocean processes that are important to ocean variability and global climate.

Recent research programs such as SHEBA, SBI, LSDCE, ACSYS, and VEINS have advanced the understanding of the high-latitude processes both in the open ocean and ice-covered oceans. Some of the programs have completed the observational phase and entering the analysis phase while others are ongoing. The Chapman Conference will provide an opportunity to review what has been learned from recent experiments and the related marginal ice zone experiments of the 1980s; MIZEX, GSP, CEAREX, and LIMEX. Future directions in high-latitude ocean processes research and upcoming programs such as SEARCH and ASOF, will also be discussed.
