SOME RESULTS FROM A TIME-DEPENDENT THERMODYNAMIC MODEL OF SEA ICE

A one-dimensional thermodynamic model of sea ice is presented that includes the effects of snow cover, ice salinity, and internal heating due to penetration of solar radiation. The incoming radiative and turbulent fluxes, oceanic heat flux, ice salinity, snow accumulation, and surface albedo are specified as functions of time. The model is applied to the central Arctic.
