Determining the influence of waves on the physical behaviour of the sea ice with mechanically generated waves
Entry ID: K131_2000_2002_NZ_1

Abstract: The interaction of the ocean wave field with the sea ice was investigated by creating a wave generating machine to generate waves which have clearly defined parameters such as amplitude and frequency. A block of ice was cut from the ice sheet and attached to a computer controlled hydraulic activator suspended from a steel frame. The movement of the block in and out of the water generates a ...
