Limit regimes of ice formation in turbulent supercooled water

11 Oct 2017  ·  De Santi Francesca, Olla Piero ·

A study of ice formation in stationary turbulent conditions is carried out in various limit regimes of crystal growth, supercooling and ice entrainment at the water surface. Analytical expressions for the temperature, salinity and ice concentration mean profiles are provided, and the role of fluctuations in ice production is numerically quantified... Lower bounds on the ratio of sensible heat flux to latent heat flux to the atmosphere are derived and their dependence on key parameters such as salt restitution in freezing and ice entrainment in the water column is elucidated. read more
