Abstract:

The long-term goal of the work is to understand the formation and decay of the frazil and pancake ice in the marginal ice zone. 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 now use many kinds of data to produce an analysis and forecast of ice conditions near the ice edge in specific regions. The model to be used as a tool developed in this project will aid in this work.
