ENHANCE-17(2017WP) — Multi-Column Ocean scheme (MCO)

Reported by: gm Owned by: gm
Priority: low Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: OCE Version: trunk
Severity: minor Keywords: MCO



Introduction of the Multi-Column Ocean scheme (MCO) developed by Barthélemy et al. (Ocean Modelling 2016), i.e. a subgrid-scale representation of ice-ocean interactions.


LIM3 includes an ice thickness distribution, which provides heterogeneous surface buoyancy fluxes and stresses. The MCO scheme take them explicitly into account, by computing convection and turbulent vertical mixing separately in the open water/lead fraction of grid cells and below each ice thickness category. The resulting distinct temperature and salinity profiles of the ocean columns are allowed to be maintained over several time steps.
