Record #125400:

Sea ice leads and characteristics / Robert S. Pritchard.

Title: Sea ice leads and characteristics / Robert S. Pritchard.
Author(s): Pritchard, Robert S.
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: Plastic sea-ice model is examined to determine relationships between velocity and stress and observed lead patterns. Disparate and apparently conflicting observations are brought into unified theory by assuming that velocity characteristic directions align with leads, but only if external forcing and boundary conditions induce velocity discontinuity along characteristic direction. Existence of velocity characteristic is necessary, but not sufficient, for model to describe lead. Characteristics cannot exist if strength is zero, and then leads open across direction of maximum principal stretching.
