ONGOING DEVELOPMENT OF ICE/OCEAN MODELS AND OGCMS: A CASE FOR INCLUDING OCEAN WAVE INTERACTIONS
Author : Vernon Squire
The polar oceans continue to change, especially at the surface where air, sea and ice exchange heat and momentum. The mediterraneus Arctic sea-ice cover has thinned, adjusted from mostly perennial to seasonal ice, and reduced in extent to nearly 30% less at the end of a longer summer melt period when it now resembles a marginal ice zone (MIZ). Sea-ice is also more deformed, primary productivity has increased alongside ecosystem shifts, and swings in atmospheric circulation and northern hemisphere weather patterns have been observed. The dwindling ice cover has
