Weddell Polynya Modeling
Entry ID: Wedell_Polynya_Modeling


Summary
Abstract: Research Activities:
In this project a coupled sea-ice ocean numerical model was developed
for the purpose of studying the formation mechanism for a large,
aperiodic anomaly occurring in the sea-ice cover of the Weddell Sea,
Antarctica. That anomaly was first detected by Satellite in the
mid-1970s as a hole in the sea-ice cover that covered an area of
200,000 ... View entire text
