How fast is landfast sea ice ? A study of the attachment and detachment of nearshore ice at Barrow , Alaska

During the two winters between 2003 and 2005, a land-based marine radar observed the nearshore ice motion during the development and decay of landfast ice near Barrow, Alaska. The radar imagery captured individual events at high temporal resolution, revealing deformation processes and allowing calculation of ice velocity and acceleration. Atmospheric… (More)
