Abstract:

The long term goal is to understand the relationship between the environmental conditions, ice properties, ice geometry, and the thermal fracturing of ice and the resulting underwater ambient noise. By doing this we hope to determine the effect of thermal fracturing on the strength of sea ice and its possible influence on climate change.
