Internal Wave Dissipation Under Sea Ice

  title={Internal Wave Dissipation Under Sea Ice},
  author={James Morison},
The dissipation of internal wave energy in the turbulent boundary layer under pack ice is determined using a time-varying boundary layer model with an eddy coefficient closure scheme. The magnitude of the eddy coefficient is determined by the ice drift velocity, which is assumed greater than the rms water velocity induced by internal waves. The Arctic Ocean… CONTINUE READING
