DRI Technical Program: Emerging Dynamics of the Marginal Ice Zone Ice, Ocean and Atmosphere Interactions in the Arctic Marginal Ice Zone. Year 3 Annual Report
BRITISH ANTARCTIC SURVEY CAMBRIDGE (UNITED KINGDOM)
Pagination or Media Count:
This DRI TECHNICAL PROGRAM Emerging Dynamics Of The Marginal Ice Zone brings together a high-level global scientific team in order to better understand the ocean, sea ice and atmosphere interaction within the marginal ice zone MIZ north of Alaska. The aim of this multi-disciplinary group is to deliver a step change in our understanding of the processes within the MIZ. This is being achieved through a comprehensive, and continuous observational program of the key physical parameters that influence the development of the MIZ. Our long-term goal is to determine the complex inter-linkages between atmosphere-ice-ocean processes so that, ultimately, parameterisations of MIZ processes can be developed for large-scale models. Our team s role in this DRI is to better understand the ice-ocean-interactions within the MIZ. This is being achieved through the deployment 2014 an autonomous data acquisition network of ice mass balance buoys IMBs, wave buoys WBs, and Automatic Weather Stations AWS in the region north of Alaska.
