Measurement of ocean waves and ice coupled waves near a fast ice boundary, McMurdo Sound
Entry ID: K137_1990_1993_NZ_1

Abstract: Ocean waves interact with Antarctic ice. Pack ice acts as a barrier to wave penetration, and attenuates the propagating waves. The presence of fast ice changes the nature of the wave interaction so that the wave characteristics are now determined by the properties of the ice. The interaction of ocean wave with the fast ice boundary and its contribution to ice breakup was determined experimentally ... View entire text
