Editors announce that the submission deadline has been extended for a special issue in the Journal of Marine Science and Engineering (JMSE), "The Ice-Ocean Boundary." Manuscripts may now be submitted until 31 December 2021.

Note that each paper will be published online and made available shortly after it is accepted, with the full citation available at that time.

For this issue, editors invite contributions from a broad range of theoretical, modeling, field, and laboratory research into processes that affect the polar ocean regions, including but not limited to:

  • Theoretical or numerical representations of boundary layers associated with currents and/or waves at the ice-ocean interface;
  • Theory/modeling of shear and form drag on ice;
  • Field or lab measurements of ice-ocean boundary processes;
  • Lagrangian drift of sea ice forced by waves;
  • Temperature and salinity exchanges between ice and ocean;
  • The effects of algae, plankton, and other cold region biota on sea ice material properties and the boundary layer;
  • Wave interactions with shore-fast ice;
  • The role of sea ice as a mediating buffer between the atmosphere and ocean; and
  • Alternative representations of surface ice and its boundary processes (e.g., viscous or viscoelastic layer, discrete element modeling, thin elastic plates).

Some zero-cost and/or discounted publication vouchers are still available.
