In book: Seamless Prediction of the Earth System: from Minutes to Months, Edition: WMO-No. , Chapter: Ocean-waves-sea ice-atmosphere . Sea ice arises as seawater freezes. Because ice is less dense than water, it floats on the ocean's surface (as does fresh water ice, which has an even lower density). Sea ice covers about 7% of the Earth's surface and about 12% of the world's oceans. Much of the world's sea ice is enclosed within the polar ice packs in the Earth's polar regions: the Arctic ice pack of the Arctic Ocean . Get this from a library! Sea ice - atmospheric interaction: application of multispectral satellite data in polar surface energy flux estimates. [K Steffen; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.;]. CICE (/ s aɪ s /) is a computer model that simulates the growth, melt and movement of sea has been integrated into many coupled climate system models as well as global ocean and weather forecasting models and is often used as a tool in Arctic and Southern Ocean research. CICE development began in the mids by the United States Department of Energy (DOE), .
Preface This book is the culmination of a workshop jointly organized by NATO and CEC on Climate-Ocean Interaction which was held at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford University during September T Modelling the Atmospheric, Oceanic and Sea Ice Components of the Climatic System. Front Matter. Mesoscale Modelling of the Arctic Atmospheric Boundary Layer and Its Interaction with Sea Ice Christof Lüpkes, Timo Vihma, Gerit Birnbaum, Silke Dierer, Thomas Garbrecht, Vladimir M. Gryanik et al. Pages Decadal variations in sea ice have been explored in detail in one model (GFDL CM) by Zhang () which discusses the important role for oceanic and atmospheric heat transports, but more research in this area is needed. Overall, Arctic sea ice trends are strongly related to changes in global mean temperature. With both the growing importance of integrating studies of air-sea interaction and the interest in the general problem of global warming, the appearance of the second edition of this popular text is especially welcome. Thoroughly updated and revised, the authors have retained the accessible, comprehensive expository style that distinguished the earlier edition.
The cryosphere can be considered to consist of sea ice, land ice, and atmospheric ice. While atmospheric ice, essentially consisting of frozen water clouds, has an indirect impact on the ocean through precipitation, including snowfall onto sea ice and land ice, and atmospheric radiation influences, we discuss it no further here as it is more of.
