Presentation Transcript

  1. Sea ice modelling, forecasting, and validation activities at Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI), Bremerhaven, Germany Christian Haas • Modelling • Thickness profiling • SAR remote sensing

  2. Operating stand-alone & coupled ice-ocean dynamic/thermodynamic models after Hibler & Lemke, Semtner • Viscous-plastic & elastic viscous plastic rheologies • Arctic and Antarctic • Modified and improved by Fischer, Harder, Kreyscher, Hillmer, Lieser • Focus on climate system studies • New: Finite element (FE) modelling

  3. [1/km] [1/km] Ridge frequency

  4. Variability of Arctic sea-ice volume 1951-1999

  5. 1951-1999 Spatial thickness and drift trends 1951-1999

  6. 1997 Temperature Anomaly (450 m depth) Temperature anomalies in the Arctic Ocean AWI-NAOSIM Temperature flux through Fram Strait

  7. Motivation Accurate Mesh Refinement and Adaptive Meshes Variational Formulation for Complex Rheologies FE Model

  8. SSM/I observations Sea ice model data 8.3.98 8.3.98 Assimilation (OI) Model run (7 days) SSM/I observationsSea ice model data 15.3.98 15.3.98 Assimilation (OI) Model run (5 days) SSM/I observations Sea ice model data 20.3.98 20.3.98 Comparison Assimilation Scheme
