|Summary||It is proposed to use a set of global ocean and ocean/ice simulations at both eddy-resolving (0.1°) and eddy-permitting (0.2°-0.4°) resolutions to understand the effects of using improved ocean and ice parameterizations, increased resolution, and the impact of ice itself on the ocean solution. Also, a high-resolution regional Pan-Arctic coupled ocean/ice model will be used to test new ice parameterizations. This effort will further out on-going research to develop a high-resolution global coupled atmosphere/ocean/ice prediction system for Navy needs which has been underway since 1999. The 0.1° global simulation will resolve both the eddy field and important narrow mean flows: quantities that are both important for Navy prediction. The eddy-permitting simulations will be used to assess improved/developed parameterizations.|
