Scientific problems for coordinated experiments
A set of scientific problems was identified during the 12th and 13th AOMIP workshops. Team leader names (PIs of experiments responsible for experiment formulation, activation, data collection, analysis and publications) are shown in bold. Also note that each of these experiments will possibly have a set of sub-experiments with sub-leaders.

Bering Strait volume, heat and salt fluxes
Canada Basin: shelf-basin exchange and mechanisms
Pacific Water circulation (origin, forcing, pathways)
Canada Basin: major mechanisms of halocline formation and variability
Circulation and fate of fresh water from river runoff
Beaufort Gyre: mechanisms of fresh water accumulation and release
Fresh water balance of the Arctic Ocean
Atlantic Water circulation
Ecosystem experiments
