ID-15 : Impact of sea ice distribution on the evolution of a polar low
Impact of sea ice distribution on the evolution of a polar low
Polar lows are intense mesoscale cyclones that occur at high latitude during winter. These cyclones can produce hurricane-like wind gusts and heavy rainfalls. The sudden development of the phenomenon, together with the sparsity of conventional measurements in the genesis and development areas, results in a low forecasting skill. Therefore, polar lows are a hazard of all maritime and coastal activities. Sea ice distributions, which controls the heat fluxes from the sea surface, may have a significant impact on the development of the polar low. This study investigates the mechanism of how the surface heat flux affect the development of polar lows.
