Short summary
The Chukchi continental slope is one of the most energetic regions in the western Arctic Ocean as it is populated with strong boundary currents and mesoscale eddies. Using a set of experiments with an idealized primitive equation numerical model, we find that the ice friction can cause the loss of energy of both the Chukchi Slope Current and mesoscale eddies over a vertical scale of 100 m through Ekman pumping. Some scales for measuring the effects of ice friction are also provided.
