Below are research papers on oceanic currents in and toward the Arctic, causing higher sea surface temperatures due to heat flux. Changes in salinity due to melting sea ice, ice shelves and glaciers, and river discharge can affect these currents. Click on the discussion page of a paper to read excerpts, download a copy and discuss the paper.
