SOAR Phase II
The second phase of SOAR is developing a series of new synthesis papers to be published in a forthcoming special issue of Deep-Sea Research Part II - Topical Studies in Oceanography, expected to be published in spring 2018.
This special issue is being framed by the same three broad themes as for the first phase:
|Theme 1||The 'New State' of the Pacific Arctic sector: Observations and models of sea ice loss, effects on primary production and acoustic ecology|
|Theme 2||Responses of mid-level trophic species to the ‘New State’ of the Pacific Arctic: Benthic and pelagic invertebrates and forage fishes|
|Theme 3||Responses of upper-trophic species to the ‘New State’ of the Pacific Arctic: Marine mammal and seabird distribution, relative abundance, phenology, diet, and habitat use.|
