Abstract:

The objectives of the ice buoy demonstration project, supporting the Great Lakes Season Extension Demonstration Program, were to test and evaluate modified standard Coast Guard aids-to-navigation buoys for use in the Great Lakes during the winter navigation season. Four standard lighted buoys were modified to increase survivability in the ice. The success of a buoymooring is a function of both the buoy shape and ice conditions at the deployment location.
