Animation of Eastern Bering Sea Brine and Meltwater Production – winter 2009-10
This animation is associated with the article: A high-resolution coupled ice-ocean model of winter circulation on the Bering Sea Shelf. Part II: Polynyas and the shelf salinity distribution , publishd in Ocean Modeling in 2020, authors Scott Durski and Alexander Kurapov. The animation shows brine and meltwater production for the winter of 2009-10 from a simulation of a coupled sea ice-ocean model. 10m Wind velocity vectors are overlaid as well as sea ice concentration contours.
