Abstract : Our main objective is to improve an operational model for wind-generated surface gravity waves (WAVEWATCH III) such that it can accurately predict the attenuation and scattering of waves by interaction with ice in the Marginal Ice Zone (MIZ). The wave model physics developed here will later be part of an operational coupled model system, allowing feedback to ice, ocean, and atmospheric models.
