Abstract:

The variability of the Laptev Sea hydrodynamics is analyzed on the basis of the Arctic Ocean model developed in ICMMG SB RAS. Based on the numerical simulation, we explore possible reasons for the increase in the bottom layer temperature known from observations, including: a) redistribution of water masses over the shelf zone forced by atmospheric dynamics; b) Laptev sea on-shelf inflow of warm and saline waters of Atlantic Layer of the Arctic Ocean, and c) the redistribution of water mass temperature anomalies caused by the heat river flux. The effect of the increase in the bottom layer temperature of the coastal region on the enhancement of underwater permafrost degradation is studied. The upper boundary of the permafrost depth and the permafrost thawing rate are estimated for the modern climate conditions and under the forecasted Arctic climate changes in the 21st century.

Keywords:

Laptev Sea, water circulation, heat flux, East Siberian Shelf, cryolitozone, subsea permafrost
