Our lab has a keen interest in under ice physical processes. We are helping pioneer the use of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) to study fluid mechanics under lake ice, sea ice, icebergs, ice islands and glacier tongue. We have field sites that span from the high-Arctic to Antarctica.
- Mixing due to salt exclusion
- Solar driven convection under ice
Turnover in brackish water bodies
- Suppression of spring turnover
- Enhancement of fall turnover due to evaporation
Importance of spectral variation of attenuation coefficient on lake heating
