SEALION, SEa cie in the Antarctic LInked with OceaN-atmosphere forcing

Project Details

Description

The aim of the project is to assess and improve the performance of coupled global atmosphere-sea ice-ocean models (AOGCMs) in reproducing sea ice in the high southern latitudes. This will be achieved by (1) deriving datasets of sea ice concentration and motion using remote sensing techniques, (2) performing selected runs with a sophisticated high resolution dynamic-thermodynamic sea ice model, which will be optimized with the datasets derived in the project, and (3) analyzing the output of coupled global AOGCM runs.
