What

Our goal is to understand the interaction of the ocean and ice (heat, mass and salt fluxes) at the sub-ice-shelf interface and to incorporate this knowledge into a coupled model that includes dynamics of the ocean and of the ice along with their interaction.

The primary objectives to achieve this goal are listed below with the lead scientist responsible for this aspect of the research.
