NSF/ARCSS Freshwater Integration study (FWI) Funded Projects

Arctic CHAMP is a funded activity of NSF/ARCSS. The first set of projects, funded under the title 'Arctic Freshwater Cycle: Land/Upper-Ocean Linkages' (or referred to as the 'Freshwater Integration study (FWI)'), links CHAMP/ASOF/SEARCH. CHAMP is coordinating this effort, and the projects are sponsored by the NSF Office of Polar Programs.

To view details about the projects, including Investigators, Abstracts, and Presentations, click on the project titles below. The Principal Investigators can be contacted via email by clicking on the names listed below. Projects can also be viewed according to Thematic Classification (i.e., 'Atmosphere', 'Modeling', 'Ocean', 'Rivers/Land', and 'Snow/Ice').
