The rivers and atmosphere transport freshwater/water vapor northward into the Arctic Ocean, and returning water sinks and drives global-scale ocean currents. Because of this role in the deepwater ocean circulation and ef- fects on climate, interest in the arctic freshwater cycle 1187 Melissa Bell 2001 is increasing.
