|Session Title||Multi-scale modeling of Arctic sea ice: Toward a kinetic theory viewpoint|
|Event||[FKT] Frontiers in kinetic theory: connecting microscopic to macroscopic scales - KineCon 2022|
Sea ice floats on the surface of the Arctic Ocean, and plays an important role in Earth's climate. Traditionally, sea ice has been modeled as a material, as a continuum, with various rheological models proposed. From a more detailed perspective, sea ice is a collection of many individual blocks of ice, called "floes." In this talk, I will discuss approaches for floe-based (i.e., particle-based) models of sea ice, including multi-scale models to bridge the gap between floe-based and continuum-based models.
