Record #199617:

Horizontal density structure and restratification of the Arctic Ocean Surface Layer / Mary-Louise Timmermans, Sylvia Cole, John Toole.

Title: Horizontal density structure and restratification of the Arctic Ocean Surface Layer / Mary-Louise Timmermans, Sylvia Cole, John Toole.
Author(s): Timmermans, Mary-Louise.
Cole, Sylvia.
Toole, John.
Date: 2012.
In: Journal of Physical Oceanography. (2012.), Vol. 42(4) (2012)
Abstract: Reports that ice-tethered profiler (ITP) measurements from Arctic Ocean's Canada Basin indicate ocean surface layer beneath sea ice with significant horizontal density structure. Observed horizontal gradients in density are dynamically important in that they are associated with restratification of surface ocean when dense water flows under light water. Such restratification is prevalent in winter and competes with convective mixing upon buoyancy forcing (e.g. ice growth and brine rejection) and shear-driven mixing when ice moves relative to ocean.
