Dynamical network models for melt ponds on sea ice

Abstract:

We present a model for the formation and evolution of melt ponds on sea ice, written as a dynamical system on a network. These ponds have long been suggested as a contributing factor to the discrepancy between observed and predicted sea ice extent; ponds have a lower albedo than bare ice, so they contribute to the ice-albedo feedback. Of particular interest here is the geometry and topology of the ponds as they grow and connect. It has been observed that there is a change in the fractal di...
