Li Erikson. Li is a research oceanographer and coastal engineer with 20+ years of experience in wave and storm surge physics, nearshore processes, coastal inundation, and shoreline change; she’s been involved in Arctic work since Her academic background includes a in Environmental Engineering, in Ocean Engineering and a Ph.D. in Coastal Engineering. The Beaufort Sea (French: Mer de Beaufort) is a marginal sea of the Arctic Ocean, located north of the Northwest Territories, the Yukon, and Alaska, and west of Canada's Arctic sea is named after Sir Francis Beaufort, a Mackenzie River, the longest in Canada, empties into the Canadian part of the Beaufort Sea west of Tuktoyaktuk, which is one of the few permanent Average depth: m ( ft).

The first assessment of fish species in the Beaufort Sea wasn't done until , she said. Still, changes are hard to miss, right down to the makeup of the water. Her research interests include nearshore circulation, coastal erosion and renewable wave energy, focusing on field observations of surface waves and storm surges. Before joining ACEP in , Eloise was a Visiting Faculty of Marine and Environmental Sciences at Alaska Pacific University, where she taught oceanography and served as the Diving.

Along the shallow Beaufort Sea coast of the Arctic Ocean, storm events during the summer are responsible for significant sediment resuspension and transport. Given the paucity of data in this difficult field area, a model has been developed to be used as a tool towards investigation of these by: generation wave model was made on a 28km grid covering much of the open waters of the Arctic and nested to a 5 km grid within the Canadian Beaufort.

Extensive validation using a series of MEDS wave measurements in water depths from 11 to 87m water depth was performed. The Beaufort Sea poses a number of special. In The Maritime Engineering Reference Book, Wind.

By tradition, the magnitude of the wind is defined by the Beaufort Scale (Admiral Beaufort, England, ). The Beaufort wind scale is based on observation of the sea, by way of a rough grouping from 1 to 12 Bft. The observed wave pattern in deep sea is related to the generating wind force.

Past and Future Forcing of Beaufort Sea Coastal Change Valuable information about regional wave climatology is provided by the extreme wave hindcast study conducted by Eid & Cardone () and.

The wave field in the Beaufort Sea is thus a function of the sea ice both locally, where wave growth primarily occurs in the open water between floes, and regionally, where the ice edge may. This report reviews hindcast studies undertaken to provide wave data for the Beaufort Sea and concludes that the data is limited by lack of information on winds, sea ice and ice effects on storm waves.

When ice is absent, from July to October, energy is efficiently transferred from the atmosphere to the ocean, generating near-inertial internal waves. When ice is present, from November to June, storms also cause near-inertial oscillations in the ice and mixed layer, but kinetic energy is weaker and oscillations are quickly by: Beaufort Sea extreme wind/wave hindcast study.
