Modelling: Sea Ice Sensitivity

Modelling is an equally critical component of Sea Ice Camp and needs to be documented as well!

While the afternoons have been dedicated to on-ice activities, in the mornings we have sat in on short lectures and exercises on modelling in the classroom.

Two days ago, Cecilia Bitz gave a short lecture on sea ice sensitivity in climate models. Here we are discussing the worksheet that she distributed to all the groups. We tested the sensitivity of sea ice by varying the initial ice thickness, snowfall rate, downward longwave radiative flux, snow and ice albedo.
