    • Impact of thermally driven ocean turbulence on the melting of ice 

      Keitzl, Thomas; Mellado González, Juan Pedro; Notz, Dirk (2016-03-23)
      Article
      Open Access
      Direct numerical simulation and laboratory experiments are used to investigate turbulent convection beneath a horizontal ice–water interface. Scaling laws are derived that quantify the dependence of the melt rate of the ...
    • Reconciling estimates of the ratio of heat and salt fluxes at the ice-ocean interface 

      Keitzl, Thomas; Mellado González, Juan Pedro; Notz, Dirk (Wiley, 2016-12-02)
      Article
      Open Access
      The heat exchange between floating ice and the underlying ocean is determined by the interplay of diffusive fluxes directly at the ice–ocean interface and turbulent fluxes away from it. In this study, we examine this ...
