Wave-Ice Interaction in the Marginal Ice Zone: Toward a Wave-Ocean-Ice Coupled Modeling System
NAVAL RESEARCH LAB STENNIS DETACHMENT STENNIS SPACE CENTER MS
Pagination or Media Count:
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. The specific objective of this proposal is to fully exploit the theoretical, observational, and iceoceanatmosphere numerical modeling work performed by various groups within the MIZ DRI and the Sea State Sea State and Boundary Layer Physics of the Emerging Arctic Ocean DRI to improve wave predictions.
