A near breakup of the surface-flooded ice wharf at McMurdo station, Antarctica / Joseph L. Barthelemy.

Title: A near breakup of the surface-flooded ice wharf at McMurdo station, Antarctica / Joseph L. Barthelemy.
Author(s): Barthelemy, Joseph L.
Date: 1992.
Publisher: Golden, CO: International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE)
In: Proceedings of the Second (1992) International Offshore and Polar Engineering Conference. Vol. 2. (1992.),
Abstract: Describes events preceding cracking of fast-ice wharf in January 1991, which occurred as vessel moored alongside. In February, wharf broke into several fragments and work could continue only with some delay. Findings of task force selected by US National Science Foundation to investigate incident are presented.
