The Melting of Ice in the Arctic Ocean: The Influence of Double-Diffusive Transport of Heat from Below

Turner, John (Stewart)


This investigation was originally prompted by two oceanographic observations: an increased rate of melting of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean, and the advance of an anomalously warm tongue of Atlantic water intruding across the Arctic below the halocline over the past few decades.Aseries of laboratory model experiments has previously been carried out to explore the possibility that the extra heating at depth could be responsible for the enhanced melting rate. These experiments have demonstrated...[Show more]
