Influence of Arctic freshwater sources on the circulation in the Arctic Mediterranean and the North Atlantic in a prognostic ocean-sea ice model / Matthias Prange.

Title: Influence of Arctic freshwater sources on the circulation in the Arctic Mediterranean and the North Atlantic in a prognostic ocean-sea ice model / Matthias Prange.
Author(s): Prange, Matthias.
Date: 2003.
In: Berichte zur Polar- und Meeresforschung = Reports on Polar and Marine Research. (2003.), Vol. 468 (2003)
Abstract: Documents design and development of 3-dimensional prognostic ocean/sea ice model of Arctic Mediterranean and North Atlantic, based on coupling "MOM2" model to dynamic/thermodynamic sea ice model with viscous plastic rheology. Implements inflow of river water and other Arctic freshwater sources using "open surface" boundary condition. Sensitivity analysis reveals major role for freshwater forcing in Arctic Ocean dynamics, including strong influences on Transpolar Drift and strength of East Greenland Current in western Fram Strait. Introduces passive tracers into model to detect pathways of Arctic rivers and Pacific waters. Concludes models driven by "virtual salinity fluxes" could be improved by implementing "open surface" boundary conditions as here. Contains English language paper in press "Variable freshwater input to the Arctic Ocean during the Holocene: implications for large-scale ocean-sea ice dynamics as simulated by a circulation model".
