The primary objective of this research has been to develop a basic scientific understanding of frazil and anchor ice including their formation nucleation or sources, growth, characteristics, and evolution and to assess the roles that they play in the development of the ice cover during freeze-up particularly in edge ice formation, floe development, and ice cover formation. The report contains the results of the above studies. Keywords Frazil ice Anchor ice Ice cover Ice Freeze-up Ice formation Alaska.
