Implementation of a sea-ice model for application in the Antarctic
Entry ID: ASAC_2504

Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2504
See the link below for public details on this project.

In this project a sea-ice model for application in Southern Ocean climate and forecasting studies will be developed to amend identified deficiencies in numerical models (i.e. unaccounted short-term dynamics; or non-suitable ice rheology). In-situ deformation and ice-stress data will be used to ... View entire text
