The main goal of this modeling work is to produce estimates of the wind fields over the Nares strait that can be used in estimating and quantifying the fresh water flux through the region. A series of underwater sensor arrays were deployed during the initial field phase of the project conducted in August 2003. More information about the underwater array can be be found in the Healy Cruise Report for the deployment period.
