The Drift of Sea Ice

Matti Leppäranta

The Drift of Sea IceThe Drift of Sea Ice brings together for the first time in one volume the theory, observations and practical applications of research into sea ice drift. It presents the fundamental laws of sea ice drift which come from the material properties of sea ice and the basic laws of mechanics. The book provides an analysis of the resulting system of equations for the general properties of sea ice drift, the free drift model, and analytical models for ice drift in the presence of internal friction.
