Abstract
An anomalously warm saline layer in the bottom of the shallow Chukchi Sea in August 1975 is believed due to a surge which drove water from the Atlantic Layer of the Arctic Ocean up onto the shelf. Two earlier occurrences of this kind of water in the Chukchi Sea have been identified in historical data.
