This White Paper takes a broad pan-Arctic approach to describe a plan for sustained ocean observations in the Arctic region directed to providing societal benefits, focusing on fulfilling the ocean component of the Global Climate Observing System in the Arctic region, while serving other needs as well. It will describe the most important in situ platforms and address associated modeling and analysis activities. The paper starts with a description of the in situ Arctic Observing Network/System required for ocean physics, ocean biology and biogeochemistry, sea ice, and the atmosphere over the Arctic Ocean. We discuss remote sensing techniques for the Arctic, and then discuss issues regarding data management, organization and Exclusive Economic Zones.
