Dr. Aagaard investigates high-latitude oceanic processes and their role in climate. He is currently studying oceanic convection and its relationship to ice distribution; the contribution of the Pacific Ocean to arctic circulation; the role of fresh water from the Arctic Ocean in the control of the thermohaline circulation in the North Atlantic; and the formation of dense water on the continental shelf and its control of ocean stratification. His work involves ocean observations and monitoring as well as analysis, all within a broad regional framework. His research has entailed fieldwork throughout the Arctic Ocean and its adjacent seas and in the subarctic. Dr. Aagaard holds a joint appointment with the School of Oceanography. He has published several books and his research papers appear in a variety of oceanographic and geophysical journals.
