Sea Ice and Oceanic Vertical Circulation:
This project contributes to the NERC ARCICE Thematic Programme under the theme of Sea ice-atmosphere-ocean interactions. It involves work in the Nordic Seas in collaboration with Peter Wadhams (SPRI) and Seymour Laxon (MSSL).
We wish to learn about how ice influences deep convection in the Greenland Sea, how ice influences shallow convection and the upstream formation of overflow waters, and how ice preconditions deep and shallow convective regions.
This page contains news about cruises and research progress.
Under the auspices of the NERC ARCICE Thematic Programme there have so far
been both a summer and winter cruise to the Nordic Seas.
