Abstract

The 1974 three-day averaged sea ice extent data for the Southern Ocean have been compared with 1000 mb temperature and sea level pressure fields from the Southern Hemisphere meteorological data. Three case studies are presented. The results demonstrate an ice-atmosphere coupling of varying strength throughout the year on time scales ranging from weeks to months and on space scales ranging from synoptic to planetary. Although the results emphasize the response of the ice edge to large-scale pressure and temperature variations, evidence is found supporting the reverse, an atmospheric response to a changing ice cover.
