Record #213193:

Estimation of ice shelf melt rate in the presence of a thermohaline staircase / Satoshi Kimura, Keith W. Nicholls, Emily Venables.

Title: Estimation of ice shelf melt rate in the presence of a thermohaline staircase / Satoshi Kimura, Keith W. Nicholls, Emily Venables.
Author(s): Kimura, Satoshi.
Nicholls, Keith W.
Venables, Emily.
Date: 2015.
In: Journal of Physical Oceanography. (2015.), Vol. 45(1) (2015)
Abstract: Presents observations of thermohaline staircase beneath George VI Ice Shelf, Antarctica. Applies parameterisation of heat and salt fluxes formulated from laboratory experiment of heating stable salinity gradient from below to predict melt rate at ice shelf base in presence of diffusive convection-favourable staircase, assuming absence of shear. Contrasts model based on assumption of shear-driven turbulence with this one, based on assumption of diffusive convection.
