Abstract This study shows that iceberg collision-risks for fixed offshore structures in the Arctic are often heavily underestimated at present. The study concentrates on concepts for the mathematical modelling of the probability of an iceberg hitting a fixed offshore structure in the Arctic. Simple and verifiable assumptions provide extensive statements of this risk. A fractal model for iceberg production is used. An iceberg melting and breakdown model is formulated and its risk implications… CONTINUE READING
