Abstract:

A set of programs were written to analyze wind and ice drift speed correlations in the data taken at Lincoln Bay in 1972. The maximum correlation for each station indicates that about 20 of the drift can be attributed to wind. The effects of time lag and Coriolis force were examined but due to the complexity of the problem no generalization on ice floe measurement could be made.
