Decadal Arctic ice simulations: 1986-1995. Final report, September 1993--November 1997

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Arctic ice cover has been simulated for the period 1986-1995 with two coupled ice-ocean models, one with low resolution on a small polar stereographic plane (PIPS1/O), and one with high resolution on a rotated spherical grid (PIPS2), covering all northern hemispheric sea ice. The ice model used was the Hibler ice model, and the ocean models were both z-level types with rigid lid. Atmospheric forcing were derived from surface fluxes computed by the Navy`s NOGAPS global atmospheric prediction model.
