DASIM: Data Assimilation for a new generation of Sea Ice Models

DASIM II follows the 1-year pilot project DASIM I and will explore the mathematical issues for assimilating data in modern sea-ice models

DASIM comes as the natural fusion between the recent achievements in Lagrangian Data Assimilation (LaDA) and sea-ice modelling. Most existing models treat the sea-ice as a visco-plastic and are unable to describe important features such as cracks, leads, and ridges. Only recently has sea-ice motion been described with Lagrangian dynamics.
