Global climate models used to predict future climate do not include tides in the ocean physics. Dense water formation occurs in ice covered seas when brine is rejected from newly forming ice. We investigate the impact tides have on sea-ice distribution and dense water formation in Arctic Shelf Seas using a dynamic/thermodynamic sea-ice model coupled to a coastal ocean model.
