  • Title: Wave Scattering in the Marginal Ice Zone

  • Abstract:

    One of the key components in the earth’s climate is the formation and melting of sea ice. Currently, we struggle to model correctly this process. One possible explanation for this shortcoming is that ocean waves play a key role and that their effect needs to be include in climate models. I will describe a series of recent experiments which seem to validate this hypothesis and discuss attempts my myself and others to model wave-ice interaction.
