Linking scales in the sea ice system

Presented by: 
Ken Golden
Monday 11th September 2017 - 11:00 to 11:45
INI Seminar Room 1
Sea ice exhibits complex structure ranging from the sub-millimeter scale brine inclusions to ice floes and coherent​ ​dynamics on the scale of hundreds of kilometers. I will give an overview of how we are using​ ​ theories of composite​ materials and statistical physics to link behavior on various scales in the sea ice system. In particular, we address key questions in sea ice homogenization, where information on smaller scales is incorporated into rigorous representations of effective large scale behavior. We also consider the inverse problem where small scale structure is inferred from larger scale effective properties.
