Technical aspects of ice navigation and port construction in Soviet Arctic / Gordon G. Watson.

Title: Technical aspects of ice navigation and port construction in Soviet Arctic / Gordon G. Watson.
Author(s): Watson, Gordon G.
Date: 1991.
Publisher: London: Belhaven Press in association with the Scott Polar Institute
In: Soviet maritime Arctic. (1991.),
Abstract: Describes various types of convoy formations with their advantages and disadvantages: single-file ice convoy, convoy in echelon, short tow operating in rivers and estuaries and tow in tandem. Gives details of recent improvements in ship construction with particular reference to Medyug conversion to Thyssen/Waas bow and icebreaking-clearing attachment. Other topics covered are: berthing in coastal ice belt; building jetties on permafrost; ice as constructional material for jetties. Discusses prospects for international use of Northern Sea Route in view of technical developments.
