Abstract:

The objective of the work is for Northwest Research Associates, Inc. NWRA in collaboration with the Technical University of Denmark DTU to develop a frazilpancake model suitable for use by the National Ice Center NIC in the marginal ice zone. The ice analystforecasters at NIC currently use many kinds of data to analyze and forecast of ice conditions near the ice edge in regions of interest. The model to be used as a tool developed in this project will aid in ice analysis and forecasting. This project has been stopped and therefore NIC will not get the new tool.
