Version of Record online: 18 DEC 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2012GL054092

Key Points

  • Bering Strait volume, heat and freshwater fluxes increase ~50% from 2001-2011
  • Most of this is due to a ~30% increase in the Pacific-Arctic pressure-head
  • Near constant maximum summer salinities set Arctic cold halocline properties
