Incorporation of a physically based melt pond scheme into the sea ice component of a climate model

Article English OPEN
Flocco, Daniela; Feltham, Danny; Turner, Adrian K.;

The extent and thickness of the Arctic sea ice cover has decreased dramatically in the past few decades with minima in sea ice extent in September 2005 and 2007. These minima have not been predicted in the IPCC AR4 report, suggesting that the sea ice component of climat... View more
