Responses of surface heat flux, sea ice and ocean dynamics in the Chukchi-Beaufort sea to storm passages during winter 2006/2007: A numerical study
Description: This study investigates storm impacts on sea ice, oceanic dynamics, and surface heat flux in the Chukchi-Beaufort Seas using a coupled ice-ocean model (CIOM). Two types of storms affect the study area: Arctic-born cyclones and north-moving Aleutian lows, which lead to strong westerly and easterly winds, respectively. Driven by 6-hourly forcing, the CIOM successfully reproduced the storm impacts. [Source: Deep Sea Research Part I: Oceanographic Research Papers]
