The Arctic snow and air temperature budget over sea ice during winter / James E. Overland, Peter S. Guest.

Title: The Arctic snow and air temperature budget over sea ice during winter / James E. Overland, Peter S. Guest.
Author(s): Overland, James E.
Guest, Peter S.
Date: 1991.
In: Journal of Geophysical Research. (1991.), Vol. 96(C3) (1991)
Abstract: Arctic cooling through autumn-winter transition is calculated from coupled atmospheric-sea ice thermal model and compared with temperature soundings and surface measurements made north of Svalbard, 1988-89. Shows that snow temperature is controlled primarily by being in radiative equilibrium with air temperature in radiative boundary layer, which, in turn, is maintained by balance between raduiative loss to space and lateral advection of heat from lower latitudes. Second topic is relation of surface air temperatures to snow temperature. Proposes that boundary layer stability is related to radiation deficit at snow surface and radiation boundary layer potential temperature aloft. Concept is of potential benefit for driving ice models with boundary layer winds.
