Venue:

Abstract: 
Viewed at a macroscopic scale, the liquid phase of the sea ice pack exhibits a stable, vertical density profile with relatively fresh melt water lying above saltier, denser brine within the ice and much denser seawater below. These layers interact through freezing, melting, dissolution and drainage processes. This talk will overview the representation of these processes in the sea ice model CICE, with indications of which ones may be important for simulating sea ice volume.
