Short summary
We evaluated if numerical model output helps us to better estimate the physical forcing that drives the air–sea gas exchange rate (k) in sea ice zones. We used 36, 9 and 2 km horizontal resolution of regional MITgcm configuration with fine vertical spacing to evaluate the capability of the model to reproduce sea ice velocity, concentration, mixed layer depth and water velocities. We found that even the coarse-resolution model can make a modest contribution to gas exchange parameterization.
