The Beaufort Gyre is one of the Arctic Ocean’s primary circulation features, storing and transporting freshwater, sea ice, and heat across the Canadian Basin, and is a critical part of the regional and global climate system.

Since 2003, during a time of unprecedented change, the Beaufort Gyre Exploration Project has provided continuous monitoring of conditions in the region and established a strong foundation that is vital for understanding the current state and future trajectories of the Arctic Ocean environment.
