The Arctic and Antarctic research community has long recognized that one of the greatest challenges presently facing the polar sciences is an accurate description of the physical and biological processes of the Seasonal Sea Ice Zone (SSIZ). As a result, the Arctic Program Office of the Office of Naval Research decided to organize a scientific workshop directed at: (1) determining our present state-of-knowledge with repsect to the SSIZ, (2) identifying specific research problem areas within the SSIZ, and (3) developing research strategies that would further our state-of-knowledge regarding the presentations were given by specialists in each of the following subject areas: ice, oceanography, meteorology and climatology, biology, acoustics, coastal processes, engineering, and modeling. These review papers are included in this publication and were not modified to incorporate additional material explored after their presentation....(Author)
