OVERVIEW
The presence of sea-ice at the surface of the Arctic Ocean strongly reflects incoming radiation and mediates the effect of the winds driving the circulation below. As the Arctic warms and the ice becomes less extensive and more mobile, its buffering effect will change and the Arctic will move in to a new regime. The aim of this workshop is to survey key theoretical ideas and concepts that pertain the current and suture Arctic, identify knowledge gaps, and stimulate further advances in our understanding of fundamental processes and mechanisms at work.
