Exploring the “solid turbulence” of sea ice dynamics down to unprecedented small scales

Jérôme Weiss
Sea ice decline is an essential player, as well as an emblematic signature, of global warming. Besides sea surface temperature rising, sea ice drift, and deformation play a major role on the observed negative mass balance, thus calling for a deeper understanding of sea ice mechanics. Over the last decades, drifters and satellite data allowed a detailed characterization of sea ice kinematics, however limited by relatively coarse space (∼10 km) and time (∼ day) resolutions. A new work allows bridging the gap between these large scales and fundamental ice physics and mechanics.
