NEMO Updates

Compute snow fall from total precipitation based on 2-m air temperature

Fixed a discontinuity “line” in wind stress field

Update runoff with a new interpolation approach

CICE with NEMO3.4 (workable but not tested for long simulation)

•High resolution nest: better resolving skill
•Simulation runs alongside parent
•AGRIF forced by separate set of data
•AGRIF boundaries supplied by parent

Fury and Hecla Strait
Freshwater Pathways into the North Atlantic
from the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and the
Greenland Ice Sheet
ANHA 1/12⁰ Configuration
• Understand pathways of freshwater into the North
Atlantic Ocean
• Fluxes through Fury and Hecla Strait
• Relative role compared to other gateways through the
Canadian Arctic Archipelago.
• Pathways for the freshwater discharged from major
tidewater glaciers around Greenland
• Function of time and glacier location
• Pathways of Irminger Water to coastal Greenland
Holloway and Proshutinsky 2007
All questions will be examined by using output
from a suite of ocean general circulation
models (NEMO) at 1/4 ⁰ and 1/12⁰, as well as
Lagrangian particle tracking tool for trajectory
analysis
Probabilities from forward trajectories, run at 1/4 ⁰ resolution, initiated at Helheim Glacier
