    • Arctic sea-ice change tied to its mean state through thermodynamic processes 

      Massonnet, François; Vancoppenolle, Martin; Goosse, Hugues; Docquier, David; Fichefet, Thierry; Blanchard-Wrigglesworth, Edward (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-06-18)
      Article
      Open Access
      One of the clearest manifestations of ongoing global climate change is the dramatic retreat and thinning of the Arctic sea-ice cover. While all state-of-the-art climate models consistently reproduce the sign of these ...
    • On the discretization of the ice thickness distribution in the NEMO3.6-LIM3 global ocean–sea ice model 

      Massonnet, François; Barthélemy, Antoine; Worou, Koffi; Fichefet, Thierry; Vancoppenolle, Martin; Rousset, Clément; Moreno-Chamarro, Eduardo (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2019-08-27)
      Article
      Open Access
      The ice thickness distribution (ITD) is one of the core constituents of modern sea ice models. The ITD accounts for the unresolved spatial variability of sea ice thickness within each model grid cell. While there is a ...
    • Relationships between Arctic sea ice drift and strength modelled by NEMO-LIM3.6 

      Docquier, David; Massonnet, François; Tandon, Neil F.; Lecomte, Olivier; Fichefet, Thierry (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2017-12-11)
      Article
      Open Access
      Sea ice cover and thickness have substantially decreased in the Arctic Ocean since the beginning of the satellite era. As a result, sea ice strength has been reduced, allowing more deformation and fracturing and leading ...
