This is an interdisciplinary web site of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution scientists currently involved in Arctic studies.

The Arctic Ocean is an important component of the global climate system. The processes occurring in the Arctic Ocean affect the rate of deep and bottom water formation in the convective regions of the high North Atlantic and influence ocean circulation across the globe. This fact is highlighted by global climate modeling studies that consistently show the Arctic to be one of the most sensitive regions to climate change. Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has adopted an interdisciplinary approach to studying the Arctic.
