Hydrographic Preconditioning for Seasonal Sea Ice Anomalies in the Labrador Sea


This study investigates the hydrographic processes involved in setting the maximumwintertime sea ice (SI) extent in the Labrador Sea and Baffin Bay. The analysis is based on an ocean and sea ice state estimate covering the summer-to-summer 1996/97 annual cycle. The estimate is a synthesis of in situ and satellite hydrographic and ice data with a regional… (More)
