Southern McMurdo Sound forms an oceanic connection between the western Ross Sea and the cavity beneath the combined Ross and McMurdo Ice Shelves. In this talk I will present some recent results looking at small-scale transport and mixing processes beneath sea ice. Particular attention will be paid to shear microstructure observations near a ridge and also a glacier tongue and the role this might play in wider transport issues.
