Abstract: Abstract. We show that simulated oceanic absorption of an atmospheric gas is very sensitive to the representation of a process that occurs beneath sea ice. As sea ice forms, salt is rejected, locally increasing surface sea-water density. This dense water can sink to the pycnocline at the base of the mixed-layer. Previous studies have not considered the impact of this subgrid-scale process on transient tracers in the ocean. To assess the potential importance of this process to the oceanic absorption of atmosph…
