Sea ice effects on the upper ocean: internal waves, ice-covered gyres and the seasonal ice zone

Abstract:

The polar oceans are currently experiencing significant changes. Arctic and Antarctic sea ice extent and volume are changing, with a poorly constrained implication for future climate. Understanding the interactions between sea ice and the underlying ocean is fundamental for understanding current changes, and predicting future ice-states.

In this thesis I study several aspects of the under-ice boundary layer and the coupling to the deeper polar ocean. First, I conduct numerical simu...
