We carried out laboratory experiments with a test tank in a cold room to estimate heat flux through coastal polynyas, which have great effects on climate in the polar regions. The estimation of heat flux from water to air was made with measurements of cooling rate of water temperature and of the rate of ice production as a function of wind speed and water salinity. Both rates increased with increasing wind speed and water salinity. The major factor that governs heat flux is the size of the opendoi:10.1017/s0260305500008788 fatcat:gui67esbunaa3dmd7tjne4kv54
