Timothy P. Stanton, William J. Shaw and Jennifer K. Hutchings Observational study of relationships between incoming radiation, open water fraction, and ocean-to-ice heat flux in the Transpolar Drift: 2002–2010 Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans (1978–2012) 117

Version of Record online: 10 JUL 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2011JC007871

Key Points

  • Heat for melting tranpolar drift ice is controlled by open ocean fraction
  • This open ocean fration dominates lateral ice melting
  • Ice albedo positive feedbacks are not yet active in the transpolar drift
