The marginal ice zone is an inter-facial region of the ocean between the open water and the continuous ice. This region is often subject to intense waves, which break the ice and are simultaneously attenuated by the broken ice. Modelling this interaction is required to understand the annual growth and decay of sea ice, but remains a difficult and open problem. I will talk about various methods which have been developed to model this process, their shortcomings, and the challenges which must be overcome for a successful model to be developed.
