Award Number: N0001413MP20163 LONG-TERM GOALS This work is motivated by the desire to improve the understanding of processes governing the evolution of the marginal ice zone that forms seasonally in the southern Beaufort and Chukchi Seas region. OBJECTIVES The objective of this work is to determine the seasonal evolution of the floe size distribution ( Figure 1 ), paying particular attention to the role of winter preconditioning of the ice on summer floe breakup. To achieve this objective we will:
