About the Beaufort Gyre Exploration Project
The Beaufort Gyre is one of the Arctic Ocean’s primary circulation features, storing and transporting freshwater, sea ice, and heat across the Canadian Basin, and is a critical part of the regional and global climate system.
Since 2003, during a time of unprecedented change, the Beaufort Gyre Exploration Project has provided continuous monitoring of conditions in the region and established a strong foundation that is vital for understanding the current state and future trajectories of the Arctic Ocean environment.
