The Arctic Observing Network - Capturing and Understanding Arctic Change with Renewed Observations at the Davis Strait Gateway

Davis Strait lies between Greenland and Canada and is one of three primary gateways between the Arctic and the global oceans. Because of this, physical and biological observations from coast to coast allow us to better understand interactions between Arctic change and the global climate. We are studying the marine ecosystem from physical and chemical water properties up through plankton, fish, and marine mammals and seabirds in order to describe long-term changes in the environment over local to pan-Arctic scales
