Record #118258:

Structure and distribution of Arctic pressure ridges / Norman R. Davis, Peter Wadhams.

Title: Structure and distribution of Arctic pressure ridges / Norman R. Davis, Peter Wadhams.
Author(s): Davis, Norman R.
Wadhams, Peter.
Date: 1992.
In: Scott Polar Research Institute. Sea Ice Group. Technical Report. (1992.), Vol. 92-2 (1992)
Abstract: Objects were to: use simultaneous upward-looking and sidescan sonar records of undeformed pressure ridges in geographically distinct regions to determine cross-sectional characteristics, spatial distribution and orientation; determine whether characteristics from large population of pressure ridges are consistent with published data from specific ridge investigations, within confines of distinct geographical areas, or entire Arctic pack; examine possible relationships between individual ridge parameters and local differences between geographical areas to gain insight into ridge-building mechanisms and theories of ice deformation.
