Nonlinear convection in sea ice and other mushy layers

Abstract:

The polar regions are changing dramatically. The Arctic ocean has seen an increasing fraction of young seasonal sea ice, which contains a relatively high fraction of liquid brine inclusions, and decreasing fraction of older multi-year ice. The binary mixture of solid ice crystals and liquid brine which forms sea ice is both porous and reactive, and can be classified as a mushy layer. Convection within porous sea ice rejects dense brine into the underlying ocean, where it provides an important...
