Measurements of sea ice physical properties and ice strain and wave pattern generated by a load moving over sea ice near Tent Island, McMurdo Sound
Entry ID: K131_1985_1986_NZ_1

Abstract: An experiment designed to study, in detail, the wave pattern generated by a load moving over sea ice was conducted on a flat area of snow free, shore fast sea ice about 2km west of Tent Island in McMurdo Sound. Simultaneously, acoustic emission data was collected on a commercially available portable activity monitor to investigate acoustic emissions generated in the sea ice as a function of ...
