Sea Ice Mass Balance in the Antarctic - Ice Cores Physics and Biogeochemistry
Entry ID: SIMBA_Ice_Cores_Physics_and_Biogeochemistry

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The data supports modeling efforts involving the development of a new sea ice biogeochemical model (SIMCO). Its parameterization relies on the results obtained during process studies such as Arise in the East, ISPOL and, now, SIMBA. Deciphering the complex biogeochemical processes governing the iron, carbon and sulphur cycle in sea ice relied on an integrated approach providing the best ... View entire text

Purpose: The overall objective of this investigation was to study, understand and quantify the physical and biogeochemical processes associated with the sea ice biota that govern the emissions of marine gases of climatic significance. These processes are indeed presently unknown and therefore not integrated into Oceanic Biogeochemical Climate Models. Particular attention was paid to Carbon Dioxide (CO2) ... View entire text
