Supplementary data:


Analysis of an interaction between long-term ice cover and atmosphere in different regions of the Arctic Ocean is conducted. For comparison the energy exchange characteristics in the western and eastern periphery of the Beaufort Gyre, the central part of the Arctic Ocean and in the area to the north of the Kara and Barents seas have been analyzed. The results of calculations based on special observations at Russian drifting station "North Pole-4" and its interpretation using a simple thermodynamic model of sea ice were used. As modern in situ data, meteorological observations at drifting stations "North Pole-35" (2007-2008) and "North Pole-39" (2011-2012) were used. Calculations of turbulent heat fluxes in the region of the drift of the American station "SHEBA" were performed. A good agreement between the calculated fluxes based on the historical data and NP-39 data for the summer period is shown. Monthly mean values and standard deviations of meteorological parameters for winter period are presented on the basis of data from drifting stations "North Pole-35" – "North Pole-40" (2007-2013).
