A one-dimensional enthalpy model of sea ice
Abstract:We present a 1-D enthalpy-based model of sea ice that allows for quantitative studies of sea ice and its interaction with radiative processes, melt ponds, oceanic heat and salt fluxes, internal density changes and surface heat fluxes on a single computational domain. The model provides new insight into the interior structure and the salinity evolution of sea ice. We compare our model results with measurements from laboratory experiments and show for example that no salt is lost from sea ice by brine expulsion.

- The Annals of Glaciology is a peer-reviewed, thematic journal published 2 to 4 times a year by the International Glaciological Society (IGS). Publication frequency is determined and volume/issue numbers assigned by the IGS Council on a year-to-year basis and with a lead time of 3 to 4 years. The Annals of Glaciology is included in the ISI Science Citation Index from volume 50, number 50 onwards.
Themes can be on any aspect of the study of snow and ice. Individual members can make a suggestion for a theme for an Annals issue to the Secretary General, who will forward it to the IGS Publications Committee. The IGS Publication Committee will make a recommendation for an individual themed Annals issue, together with a potential Annals Chief Editor for that issue, to IGS Council. The IGS Council will make the decision whether to proceed, taking into account the spread of topics and the overall capacity for publication of pages in Annals.
