Abstract A dynamic model that hindcasts iceberg drift trajectories under the influence of wind and current drag and Coriolis forcing is tested with data on winds, current profiles, and iceberg size and shape. Thirteen drift track data sets have been compiled at 10 minute intervals for periods of 11 to 73 hours. Icebergs were tracked by radar range and bearing to a ship positioned by LORAN C. Sonar profiles and photographs were analysed to estimate iceberg mass and cross-sectional areas below… CONTINUE READING
