Abstract : The overarching long-term goal of project N00014-131-0279 remains as defined in the original proposal, namely to include two-dimensional (2D) ocean surface wave interactions with sea ice in a contemporary 3D Arctic ice/ocean model. To accomplish this primary goal, the objectives listed in the next section will be achieved during the journey. Consequential to the primary goal, we aim to develop an improved parametrization of how ocean waves and sea ice interact, for use in operational models of the Arctic Basin and the adjacent seas; improve the forecasting capacities of contemporary Arctic climate models.
