Abstract:

Observations of shore ice pile-up and ride-up along the Alaska Beaufort Sea coast in 1983 and 1984 are presented. New information on historical accounts of onshore ice movement, uncovered since publication of Part I in this series, is reported. An account is given of ice overtopping a concrete caisson exploration island in the Canadian Beaufort Sea. Part I covered the winters of 1979-80, 1980-81 and 1981-82. Part II presents observations made in early May and late July 1983 and mid-May 1984.
