Major elements of the hydrological cycle for the Northern Hemisphere where AC – atmospheric circulation/currents; Ice – sea ice forced by winds and ocean currents; R – river runoff; CW – cold relatively fresh water surface currents; WW – warm and salty water currents which bring heat and salt to the Arctic Ocean to compensate fresh water outflow with surface layer currents.
