Abstract:

LONG-TERM PROJECT GOALS. 1. Establish the scientific basis for the next generation regional sea-ice model. 2. Understand the spacetime variability of wind forcing. OBJECTIVES. 1. Investigate the granularplastic nature of sea ice, based on comparison of wind data, SAR ice motion data, and floe scale 20 km relative buoy motions. 2. Publish an article concerning the influence of scale on sea ice dynamics in EOS, Transactions of the AGU.
