The goal of the ONR Arctic and Global Prediction program is to improve predictions of the Arctic marine physical environment at a variety of time and space scales. Consequently, the program has three focus areas:

1. Investigate new technologies for sustained operation and observation in the Arctic Ocean
2. Improve understanding of the physical environment and processes in the Arctic Ocean
3. Develop integrated ocean-ice-wave-atmosphere Earth System models for improved prediction
