Sea ice and the ocean mixed layer over the Antarctic shelf seas

  title={Sea ice and the ocean mixed layer over the Antarctic shelf seas},
  author={Alek A. Petty and Paul R. Holland and Daniel L. Feltham},
An ocean mixed-layer model has been incorporated into the Los Alamos sea ice model CICE to investigate regional variations in the surface-driven formation of Antarctic shelf waters. This model captures well the expected sea ice thickness distribution, and produces deep ( > 500 m) mixed layers in the Weddell and Ross shelf seas each winter. This results in the complete destratification of the water column in deep southern coastal regions leading to high-salinity shelf water (HSSW) formation, and… CONTINUE READING
