Marginal Ice Zone. A Brief Review

  • Ola M. Johannessen
  • Stein Sandven

The section review major experiments carried out in the Marginal Zone (MIZ), (Sect. 3.1.2), and the mesoscale processes along the ice edge in the Fram Strait, Greenland and Barents Seas such as the Polar Ocean Fronts in the Greenland and Barents Seas (Sect. 3.1.3), ice-ocean eddies (Sect. 3.1.4), ice edge upwelling (Sect. 3.1.5), internal waves in the MIZ (Sect. 3.1.6), the future of MIZ (Sect. 3.1.7) before concluding with a Summary of the section (Sect. 3.1.8).


The Marginal Ice Zone (MIZ) is the crucial region in which the polar air, ice and ocean interact. The exchanges which take place in the MIZ profoundly influence hemispheric climate system (Johannessen et al. 2004, 2016) and have also significant effects on fisheries (Drinkwater et al. 2014), shipping, petroleum exploration and production, tourism and naval operation (Johannessen et al. 1992, 2003, 2007). The MIZ is located where sea ice and open...
