Arctic PRIZE, Arctic productivity in the seasonal ice zone

The core objective of Arctic PRIZE is to investigate the seasonally-varying interplay between physical forcings and nutrient fluxes, and their impact on primary productivity and related zooplankton dynamics and benthic communities. This will support development of enhanced modelling capabilities to make projections of ecosystem response to reducing sea ice cover. We will investigate and model fundamental processes driving the Arctic Ocean ecosystem to predict its response to sea ice retreat.
