AbstractIn order to quantitatively investigate the role of leads and sea-ice in air-mass modification, aircraft observations were conducted over the partially ice-covered Sea of Okhotsk. We investigated two cold-air outbreak events with different sea-ice concentrations. In both cases, the difference between the temperatures of surface air and the sea surface (ΔT) dropped rapidly with the accumulated fetch-width of leads up to about 35-40 km, and then decreased very slowly. The surface sensible… 
Aircraft Observations of Air-Mass Modification Upstream of the Sea of Japan during Cold-Air Outbreaks
Russian research aircraft observed the atmospheric boundary layer in 2001 during weak (29 Jan.), intense (2 Feb.), and very intense (3 Feb.) cold air outbreaks. These observations occurred during a
Modelling of warm-air advection over Arctic sea ice
The evolution of the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) during warm-air advection over sea ice in the Fram Strait is investigated. A hierarchy of numerical models is applied and the results are

On the Increasing Importance of Air-Sea Exchanges in a Thawing Arctic: A Review
Forty years ago, climate scientists predicted the Arctic to be one of Earth’s most sensitive climate regions and thus extremely vulnerable to increased CO2. The rapid and unprecedented changes
Variability within cold air outbreaks and implications for parametrization
The changing structure of the marginal sea-ice zone (MIZ), together with high temperature gradients between the cold Arctic air and relatively warm sea water, contribute to uncertainty in numerical
An Analysis of Arctic Sea Ice Leads Retrieved from AMSR-E/AMSR2
In this study, we retrieve an Arctic sea ice lead fraction from AMSR2 passive microwave data in winter from 2012 to 2020 based on an algorithm developed for AMSR-E data. The derived AMSR2 sea ice
