SIPW02 - Ice-fluid interaction

When I started modelling wave scattering by sea ice in 1991, even the simplest two-dimensional model of wave scattering by a single ice floe had not been solved accurately. By 1996 I had developed three-dimensional models for an ice floe and a paradigm for the inclusion of scattering in wave prediction code. Some of this work was done during a month I spent at the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge in 1995.Looking back, and returning to Cambridge 22 years later, it is striking (and slightly depressing) how progress on this topic has stalled. The reasons for this are largely mathematical and in this talk I will try and give a flavour of these difficulties and suggest some possible methods to tackle them.
