IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Simulating Sea Ice in the Arctic Ocean and Eastern Siberian Sea
Author : Manome, Ayumi, and Jia Wang
This study conducts ice-ocean coupled simulations for the Arctic Ocean, with the nested region of the Eastern Siberian Sea with 4km horizontal resolution. The ocean model is based on the Princeton Ocean Model. The ice dynamic model is based on the elastic-viscous-plastic rheology and the ice thermodynamics is based on the one-dimensional 0-layer model. These models are fully parallelized using the Message-Passing Interface. Initial conditions for ocean and sea ice, as well as atmospheric forcing, are provided by NCEP Climate Forecast System Reanalysis. The simulation will ultimately incorporate data assimilation of hydrographic data from the Russian-American Long-term Census of the Arctic (RUSALCA) cruises. The study will present an initial hindcast simulation from 2000 to 2015 with basic model validation based on comparison with satellite observations.
