Record #80278:

On the spacing and draft distributions for pressure ridge keels / Peter Wadhams, Tom Davy.

Title: On the spacing and draft distributions for pressure ridge keels / Peter Wadhams, Tom Davy.
Author(s): Wadhams, Peter.
Davy, Tom.
Date: 1986.
In: Journal of Geophysical Research. (1986.), Vol. 91(C9) (1986)
Abstract: Negative exponential distribution considered as description of pressure ridge spacings and drafts. Gave excellent fit for latter. Spacing distribution found to be fitted better by three-parameter lognormal distribution, of which third parameter (threshold) is dependent on beam width of sonar used to collect ice-bottom profile.
Notes:

Journal of Geophysical Research. Vol. 91(C9) :10, 697-10, 708 (1986).
