Title: How does the seasonal sea ice impact ocean stratification and mean flow?

Supervisers: Camille Lique (IFREMER), Yueng-Djern Lenn (Bangor Univesity)

Funding: DGA and Dstl

Started: October 2016

Arctic sea ice is becoming seasonal, with potential impacts on the stratification and the mean flow in the seasonal marginal ice zone. The aim of this project is to use satellite observations supplemented with 1D and 3D models to describe and quantify the seasonal cycle of the circulation and stratification in these regions.
