Abstract
    A model of sea-ice formation and movement has been developed and applied to a sector of the Southern Ocean including the Weddell Sea and the Drake Passage. This sea-ice model with leads is described in two parts : - the thermodynamical component, which represents the freezing and melting processes due to energy fluxes , between the atmosphere, ice, and ocean; - the dynamical component, presently limited to the computation of ice movement due to wind. Results from this model, including ice thickness, temperature. and spatial extent, will be presented and discussed for a particular point and for the whole area .
