Effect of the snow cover on ice growth rates at land-fast ice stations in the Canadian Arctic / Simon J. Prinsenberg.

Title: Effect of the snow cover on ice growth rates at land-fast ice stations in the Canadian Arctic / Simon J. Prinsenberg.
Author(s): Prinsenberg, Simon J.
Date: [1993]
Publisher: Edmonton, Alberta: University of Alberta, Department of Civil Engineering
In: IAHR 92; 11th International Symposium on Ice, Banff, Alberta, Canada, June 15-19, 1992. Proceedings. ([1993]), Vol.2.
Abstract: Spatial and temporal variations in thermal parameters of snow and ice are determined by fitting climatic ice and snow thickness data to results of freezing degree-day model. As expected, drier Arctic snow conducts heat slower than does wetter snow at lower latitudes. When effect of snow on ice growth is parameterized, using station's ice thicknesses, empirical constants of freezing degree-day models can be related to thermal properties of snow and ice and shown to vary with latitude. With variable constants, ice growth can be predicted more accurately than with non-variable constants.
