ImMEDIAT (ANR JCJC)
Financeur du programme
The Arctic system, as a whole, is in transition. Interactions between mesoscale eddies and sea ice could potentially represent an important mechanism, via which the ocean contributes to the on-going and future sea ice retreat.
The goal of ImMEDIAT is twofold: 1) thanks to a innovative method using satellite sea ice observations complemented with results from realistic simulations run at very high resolution, we will quantify the mesoscale activity in the ice-covered Arctic, and determine if it fundamentally differs from the other oceans, and 2) based on idealized and realistic models, we will investigate the interplay between eddies and sea ice.
