Record #110166:

A numerical study of interannual ocean forcing on Arctic ice / Gordon H. Fleming, Albert J. Semtner, Jr.

Title: A numerical study of interannual ocean forcing on Arctic ice / Gordon H. Fleming, Albert J. Semtner, Jr.
Author(s): Fleming, Gordon H.
Semtner, Albert J.,
Date: 1991.
In: Journal of Geophysical Research. (1991.), Vol. 96(C3) (1991)
Abstract: Fully prognostic ice-ocean model is used to examine importance of interannually variable ocean forcing on large-scale monthly simulations of Arctic ice cover. Model is forced by prescribed interannually variable atmosphere. Simulations are conducted for 120-month period and are validated with observed ice concentration data. Produces very reasonable simulations of ice-edge position, especially in Barents and Greenland seas. Use of interannual ocean forcing produces major improvements to simulation of ice concentration for annual cycle and for interannual variations, compared with simulations in which ocean forcing is prescribed mean annual cycle. Vertical ocean flux appears to be dominant mechanism controlling local ice area anomalies and overall ice concentration. Some errors and drawbacks are discussed.
