MCRN Colloquium Webinar Title: Modelling the Marginal Ice Zone

Speaker: Luke Bennetts (University of Adelaide)

Date and Time: Thursday, November 19th, 7:00pm EST

Abstract: The marginal ice zone (MIZ) is the 10s to 100s of kilometres of partially ice-covered ocean, which sits between the open ocean and the quasi-continuous ice cover. It’s a highly dynamic region, where open ocean wave processes impact the ice cover, and it’s becoming larger and more significant in the era of climate change.

I’ll summarise existing models of the MIZ (with a slight bias for my own work). I’ll then discuss how these models are being integrated into large-scale models used for operational forecasting and climate studies.
