Atmosphere-Ocean-Ice Interaction in a Coastal Polynya
Entry ID: NSF-ANT07-39464

Abstract: Antarctic polynyas are the ice free zones often persisting in continental sea ice. Characterization of the lower atmosphere properties, air-sea surface heat fluxes and corresponding ocean depth profiles of Antarctic polynyas, especially during strong wind events, is needed for a more detailed understanding of the role of polynya in the production of latent-heat type sea ice and the formation, ...
