Record #112491:

Coupling between the ocean and an ice shelf / Colin Fox, Vernon A. Squire.

Title: Coupling between the ocean and an ice shelf / Colin Fox, Vernon A. Squire.
Author(s): Fox, Colin.
Squire, Vernon A.
Date: 1991.
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1991.), Vol. 15 (1991)
Abstract: Investigated by using thick elastic plate equation to study transmission of wave energy into ice shelf. Strain set up on ice shelf by normally incident single-frequency ocean wave is calculated by completely solving equations governing velocity potential for system. Existing measurements of long-period strain on ice tongue are used to estimate required incident amplitude in open water to induce observed oscillations. Found that height of seas required indicates that ocean-wave driving is plausible forcing mechanism for observed oscillations.
