This view of the Arctic hydrological cycle shows key linkages among land, ocean, and atmosphere. Quantifying the coupling of these components within the Arctic and to the larger Earth system remains an important yet unresolved research issue. The hydrological cycle is inextricably connected to all biological and chemical processes occurring in the biosphere, atmosphere, and cryosphere. Hydrologic interactions with terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and their biogeochemistry control all life in the pan-Arctic region.
