We would like to make you aware of a special issue, “The Ice-Ocean Boundary”, which will be published later this year by the Journal of Marine Science and Engineering (JMSE). For this issue, we invite contributions from a broad range of theoretical, modeling, field and laboratory research into processes that affect the polar ocean regions, including but not limited to:

  • Theoretical or numerical representations of boundary layers associated with currents and/or waves at the ice-ocean interface
  • Theory/modeling of shear and form drag on ice
  • Field or lab measurements of ice-ocean boundary processes
  • Lagrangian drift of sea ice forced by waves
  • Temperature and salinity exchanges between ice and ocean
  • The effects of algae, plankton, and other cold region biota on sea ice material properties and the boundary layer
  • Wave interactions with shore-fast ice
  • The role of sea ice as a mediating buffer between the atmosphere and ocean
  • Alternative representations of surface ice and its boundary processes (e.g., viscous or viscoelastic layer, discrete element modeling, thin elastic plates)

Manuscripts may be submitted until 31 December 2021.  (Note that each paper will be published online and made available shortly after it is accepted, with the full citation available at that time.)
