Our project focuses on decadal, interannual, and seasonal ocean variability in the North Pacific using retrospective analyses of atmospheric and oceanic observations. Our first year effort has been mainly creating the physical data bases that are being used in the NEP program by this and other projects. Data analysis and interpretation have been initiated. Preliminary results have been presented at several scientific meetings, and several scientific papers are in preparation. Our current work is focusing heavily on the analysis of the historical oceanic and atmospheric data sets developed and customized in the initial year’s efforts. The analysis will concentrate on describing the primary patterns of and mechanisms for seasonal, interannual, and decadal variability in wind forcing and upper ocean fields. Below are some highlights of our NEP work to date.
