Interannual variability and future changes of the Southern Ocean sea ice cover PDF

Wouter Lefebvre

The interannual variability of the sea ice in the Southern Ocean and its evolution projected for the end of the 21st century are investigated using observations and different types of models. First of all, none of the known atmospheric modes of variabilit

Sea Ice - NASA Changes in the El Niño-Southern Oscillation Index (ENSO), an oscillation of ocean temperatures and surface air pressure in the tropical Pacific, can lead to a delayed response (three to four seasons later) in Antarctic sea ice extent. In general, El Niño leads to more ice in the Weddell Sea and less ice on the other side of the Antarctic Peninsula, while La Niña causes the opposite conditions.

Primary production in the Southern Ocean, 1997–2006 Interannual variability in annual production was most closely tied to changes in sea ice cover, although changes in sea surface temperature also played a role. Only 31% of the variation in annual production was explained by the Southern Annular Mode. Annual primary production could increase in the future as stronger winds increase nutrient upwelling.

White and Peterson (1996) identified significant interannual variations in surface pressure, wind, temperature and sea-ice extent over the Southern Ocean. They suggest that these parameters are phase-locked and that the coherent anomalies propagate eastward with the circumpolar flow, with a period of four to five years and a wavelength of 180° in longitude, forming the so-called "Antarctic

ENSO-related impacts on Antarctic sea ice: a synthesis of ... The cryosphere in the Southern Ocean is an active component in global climate. It is also influenced by the many local, regional and remote climate variabilities at periods ranging from synoptic to geological timescales. Since satellite observations became available in the 1970s, many studies have investigated the interannual variability of sea ice and its covariation with global climate. A

Interannual variability in sea-ice thickness in the … Although October–February is the ice retreat season in the Indian Ocean sector of the Southern Ocean (Ushio, 2006), the sea-ice concentration increased from November to December in 1993, 1994, and 2011. Note that these years correspond to years of strong northerly wind, particularly 1993 and 2011. It is likely that in these years the sea ice was ridged and rafted around the coastal region
