Record #112010:

Response of sea ice drift to wind forcing on the northeastern Newfoundland shelf / D.B. Fissel, C.L. Tang.

Title: Response of sea ice drift to wind forcing on the northeastern Newfoundland shelf / D.B. Fissel, C.L. Tang.
Author(s): Fissel, D. B.
Tang, C. L.
Date: 1991.
In: Journal of Geophysical Research. (1991.), Vol. 96(C10) (1991)
Abstract: Examined by means of observations obtained with satellite-tracked ice beacons in March-April 1988 and 1989. Includes effects of coastline, internal stress of ice, and general ice conditions. Short-term (5 to 20 d) response of seasonal sea-ice drift to wind forcing ranged from 2.6 to 5.4% of local wind over much of inner continental shelf. Response was largest near ice edge, both over middle portion of shelf and along southern margins of marginal ice zone, and during strong, steady wind of several days' duration. Large wind-driven response observed in this study, in comparison with Arctic, may result from (1) reduced levels of internal ice stress associated with thin ice cover and lower areal concentration of sea ice, (2) large atmospheric drag coefficients associated with small ice flows in areas of comparatively higher ice concentration, and (3) smooth ice bottom caused by melting.
