Project Objectives:

The interaction of surface gravity waves with drift ice influences ice breakup and wave damping. These effects have become important for Arctic ice as climate change has led to shrinking ice-covered areas. Drift ice has become more exposed to the action of storm waves and swell. The project aims to investigate wave penetration below solid model ice, measure wave characteristics depending on the distance from the ice edge, and describe physical mechanisms of wave damping by solid ice including under-ice turbulence and inelastic ice rheology. The secondary goal of the project is to investigate progressive failure of the ice edge under the action of incoming waves.
