Monitoring the Atlantic Inflow toward the Arctic
The main objective of MAIA was the development of an inexpensive, reliable system for monitoring the inflow of Atlantic water to the Nordic Seas, based on coastal sea level data, and to see how changes of ice extent in the north are related to this flux. Available observation systems, including standard tidal stations, were used to obtain transport estimates with a time resolution of less than a week and the method was tested to find out if it could be applied to a similar monitoring of other regions.
