Simulation of convection at a vertical ice face dissolving into saline water
We investigate the convection and dissolution rate generated when a wall of ice dissolves into seawater under Antarctic Ocean conditions. In direct numerical simulations three coupled interface equations are used to solve for interface temperature, salinity and ablation velocity, along with the boundary layer flow and transport. The main focus is on ambient water temperatures between −1∘C and 6∘C and salinities around 35 ‰, where diffusion of salt to the ice–water interface depresses the...[Show more]
