Phytoplankton Blooms Under Antarctic Sea Ice

Areas covered in compact sea ice are often assumed to prohibit upper ocean photosynthesis. Yet under-ice phytoplankton blooms (UIBs) have increasingly been observed in the Arctic, driven by anthropogenic changes to the optical properties of Arctic sea ice. Here we...

Observing Waves in Sea Ice With ICESat-2

The coupled interaction of ocean surface waves and sea ice is important in determining the thermodynamic and dynamic properties of sea ice and its relationship to the ocean and atmosphere. Wave-ice interactions create the marginal ice zone (MIZ), a region critically...
