Abstract

In an effort to support the Chinese Arctic Research Expedition in the summer of 2010, the Arctic sea ice numerical forecasting experiments were conducted. Aregional Arctic configuration of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology general circulation model (MITgcm) was chosen as the coupled ice-ocean model for forecasting sea ice conditions in the Arctic Ocean. The numerical weather prediction of the National Center for Environmental Prediction Global Forecast System (NCEPGFS) was chosen as the atmospheric forcing, and two different satellite derived sea ice concentration products were tested as initialization: (1) the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer for EOS (AMSR-E) and (2) the Special Sensor Microwave Imager (SSM/I). Forecast skill assessments of the sea ice concentration fields from the senumerical experiments are presented. Full text is in Chinese only.
