Abstract
    A time-dependent depth-integrated barotropic physical model was constructe to simulate the gross features of the circulation of the northern Bering and southern Chukchi seas during 1985. The model uses a linear form of the Navier-Stokes and continuity equations to obtain the horizontal velocities in the x and y directions. Current meters at the upstream boundary provided a time-dependent inflow. An open boundary condition was used at the downstream end ot the model to allow only outward energy flux. Additional current meters in the interior were used for validation of the model. Two types of wind stress specification and one case of no wind forcing were applied. Biochemical tracers are added to the model in the form of dissolved nutrients and phytoplankton chlorophyll to explore the implications of short-term fluctuations in the flow field.
