Record #112490:

The role of incoming waves in ice-edge dynamics / Vernon A. Squire, Colin Fox.

Title: The role of incoming waves in ice-edge dynamics / Vernon A. Squire, Colin Fox.
Author(s): Squire, Vernon A.
Fox, Colin.
Date: 1991.
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1991.), Vol. 15 (1991)
Abstract: Radiation stress of ice edge due to incident sea and swell is reconsidered in light of new theoretical results concerned with calculation of reflection and transmission coefficients at edge of thin elastic sheet. Both monochromatic seas and seas made up of spectrum of periods are discussed, latter invoking Pierson-Moskowitz spectral model. Found that force per unit length due to radiation stress is comparable in magnitude with other driving mechanisms at edge, i.e. winds and currents.
