Getting to the bottom of the Arctic sea ice decline:
Investigation of heat movement near the North Pole and under the Arctic sea ice
[Kawaguchi et al. (2022JGR)]
During the international expedition of the Arctic Ocean, MOSAiC, we pursuit physical mechanisms of the thermal energy flow near ice-ocean boundary layer, that could affect the retreat of the Arctic sea ice.
First direct measurements of ocean current off coast of Russia
–– Cold water from Anadyr Strait likely affects Arctic sea ice and global climate
[Kawaguchi et al. (2020JGR)]
According to our direct observations using a Russian RV Multanovskii (FEHHRI) and Japanease RV Mirai (JAMSTEC), the cold water upwells near the Siberian coast of the Anadyr Strait, we discovered.
I'm engaged in scientific fields of polar physical oceanography. I love visiting and researching beautiful, wild natures in the Arctic or anywhere else on the earth. I am particularly insterested in ice and ocean dynamics. My works to date are concerned with sea-ice modeling, gravitiy waves, mesoscalar vortices, turbulence in the ocean, etc. Thank you for reading.
