SIPW01 - Multi-scale modelling of ice characteristics and behaviour

We investigate thermal conduction in sea ice in the presence of fluid flow, as an important example of an advection diffusion process in the polar marine environment. Using new Stieltjes integral representations for the effective diffusivity in turbulent transport, we present a series of rigorous bounds on the effective diffusivity, obtained using Padé approximates in terms of the Péclet number.
We first analyze the effective thermal conductivity of sea ice in the presence of an averaged convective velocity field, neglecting the two phase microstructure of sea ice, and then present a homogenization analysis of the full two component system composed of brine and ice.
