Record #96693:

Estimating the thickness of sea ice / Robert H. Bourke, Robert G. Paquette.

Title: Estimating the thickness of sea ice / Robert H. Bourke, Robert G. Paquette.
Author(s): Bourke, Robert H.
Paquette, Robert G.
Date: 1989.
In: Journal of Geophysical Research. (1989.), Vol. 94(C1) (1989)
Abstract: Sea-ice freeboard, thickness, and snow depth were measured from series of closely spaced drill-hole sites from five free-floating multiyear ice floes in Beaufort Sea during spring 1986 and 1987. Regression of ice thickness on ice draft was performed on data from each floe and for combined data set. Regressions were performed both on non-screened data and on data screened to eliminate pressure ridges. Predictive equation was developed permitting total ice thickness to be estimated from measured values of ice draft. Keel-sail height ratio for pressure ridges was found constant at 3.3 to 1, in agreement with past observations.
