SIPW05 - SIP Follow on: Mathematics of sea ice in the twenty-first century

Antarctic land-fast sea ice (fast ice) is held stationary by the coastline, the seaward edge of floating ice tongues or shelves, or by grounded icebergs. It is usually less than 200 km wide, and forms in autumn and disintegrates in spring/summer, with few regions of multiyear ice. However the thickness distribution and volume of fast ice are unknown, and its large-scale modeling is in its infancy. This presentation will present a first inventory of fast ice thickness in the western Ross Sea, and will review recent advances and gaps in our knowledge.
