Arctic Leads Experiment (LEADEX) Model Forcing and Data for the GEWEX Cloud System Study Data Integration for Model Evaluation (GCSS-DIME)

Abstract: Ships and submarines have historically used leads, or sea ice
fractures, to navigate Arctic waters. Scientists study leads to better
understand their roles in arctic climatology and global climate
change. Leads, particularly those exposing warm ocean water to cold
arctic air, influence the energy balance at polar latitudes by
