The environment and ecosystems in the Arctic are particularly sensitive to changing climate and unanticipated responses are already manifesting. We challenge to predict the effects on climate changes with understanding ocean and sea ice dynamics in the Arctic Ocean and adjacent seas through ship observation and the-state-of-the-art instruments. We examine the effects of changing sea ice and current system on marine ecosystem. By means of meteorological data analysis and numerical modeling, we also try to figure out how the atmosphere interacts with the surface of the Earth such as the ocean, sea ice and land surface.
