Arctic Shipping Forecast

MITgcm underpins a new Chinese Arctic sea-ice prediction system.


High Latitude Channel Flow Revisited

Canadian researchers have been using the MITgcm in an idealized channel to investigate high-latitude tidal dynamics relevant to the fjords and channels of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.


The Trouble With Sea-Ice

This month we spotlight work by a team from McGill University who have been using MITgcm to model oil spill scenarios around the Arctic Ocean Basin to better understand spill behavior in the presence of sea-ice.


Sea – Ice Interplay

In a novel approach, MITgcmers Ian Fenty and Patrick Heimbach use optimal state and parameter estimation to improve the sea-ice simulations.


MITgcm on Ice

In a recent paper in the Journal of Physical Oceanography, An Nguyen (MIT) and co-authors Ronald Kwok (JPL) and Dimitris Menemenlis (JPL) report on work using MITgcm to better understand the origin and character of  the western arctic, upper halocline.
