documentation of ice shelf eqns.

#1 Post by rmueller » Tue Jul 17, 2007 1:42 am

I am looking for a good reference on the equations used in the ROMS ice shelf coupling, but I am obviously not looking in the right places. Everything that I find seems to refer to the sea ice coupling rather than the ice shelf. What is the paper(s) from which the ROMS ice shelf equations are derived?
Thx (in advance).

I'll answer my own question in case someone else is looking for similar information.

Check
<http>

and refer to:

Holland and Jenkins (1999)
Grosfeld et al. (1997)
Jenkins and Holland (2002)
Pereira et al. (2002)
Blumberg and Mellor (1987)

I haven't yet checked the equations to see where specific values/eqns. come from. This is at least a start.

Well that's not helpful! eh?

take two.

try:

Or go to John Hunter's home page and look for "ISOMIP" files.

None of the above is the real answer. All they are is a modification to the water column depth (for the geometry) and an upside down bottom drag for the boundary condition.

Roger that, Enrique. Mike Dinniman (CCPO, ODU) helped point out that the version I am using isn't "out of the box" and his improvement included the addition of thermodynamics. At the time of posting, I thought that this may be a good forum discussion point but it seems that my question is not as generic as I had thought. In any case, thanks for the comment.
