Short summary
The current paper presented findings on seasonal and interannual variability of sea ice algal production and biomass over the western Arctic Chukchi Boderland using a pan-Arctic sea ice-ocean modeling approach. In particular, the relationship with wind pattern was focused on. Coupling of physical and biogeochemical analyses provided originality of this study.
