Ocean Group Question (s). Will an ice reduced Arctic become more productive and what are the consequences of this to other components of the system? Is production limited by light or by nutrients?

First year ice, open water, and seasonal ice zone?
1) SE Beaufort/Banks Island Start, summer in SW Beaufort in seasonal ice and then open water
Ship would be located near north coast of Alaska where it could be accessed by helicopters and other icebreakers for logistics (break-down ice camp, transfer gear on/off ship, beer replenishment)
2) SW Beaufort Start/Arctic Grand Tour
3) Eurasion Drift (Laptev to Fram)
Potential for repositioning during spring, summer, fall if drift carries us to disparate hydrographic regime
Icebreaker centered camp with satellite installations (e.g.,ITPs) up to 2-3 Rossby Radii (10 km) away and use of ROVs/AUVs/Gliders equipped with an expanded range of sensors to expand range of sampling
Need helicopter support to establish/maintain/move remote installations, other remote sampling, sea ice reconnaissance
Adaptive sampling/positioning of the satellite installations based on ship drift and done using helicopter
