☯ Full Synopsis : "The year is 1868, and fourteen-year-old Alika and his younger brother, Sulu, are hunting for seals on an ice floe attached to their island in the Arctic. Suddenly the ice starts to shake, and they hear a loud crack--the terrible sound of the floe breaking free from land. The boys watch with horror as the dark expanse of water between the ice and the shore rapidly widens, and they start drifting south--away from their home, their family, and everything they've ever known. Throughout their six-month-long journey down the Greenland Strait, the brothers face bitter cold, starvation, and most frightening of all, vicious polar bears. But they still remain hopeful that one day they'll be rescued. This thrilling new adventure story from bestselling author Theodore Taylor is a moving testament to the bond between brothers--and to the strength of the human spirit. Includes a map, a glossary of Inuit words and phrases, and an author's note.."Article| Theodore Taylor| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The issue of global warming and climate change is of continuous concern. Since the 1970s, it bas been shown that the pack-ice around the Arctic Ocean is thinning, the margin of permafrost is moving north and the vegetation in the high northern parts of the world is changing (the 'greening' of the Arctic). But are these changes the result of human activity or simply regular variations of the Earth's climate system? Over thousands of years, a continuous archive of iceberg and sea ice drift bas formed in the deep-sea sediments, revealing the place of the ice's origin and allowing a reconstruction of the surface currents and the climate of the past. However, the drift of floating ice from one place to another is not just a passive record of past ocean circulation. It actively influences and changes the surface ocean circulation, thus having a profound effect on climate change. Ice Drift, Ocean Circulation and Climate Change is the first book to focus on the interactions between ice, the ocean and the atmosphere and to describe how these three components of the climate system influence each other. It makes clear the positive contribution of paleoclimatology and paleoceanography and should be read by anyone concerned with global warming and climate change."Article| Jens Bischof| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The Second Edition of The Drift of Sea Ice presents the fundamental laws of sea ice drift which come from the material properties of sea ice and the basic laws of mechanics. The resulting system of equations is analysed for the general properties of sea ice drift, the free drift model and analytical models for ice drift in the presence of internal friction, and the construction of numerical ice drift models is detailed. This second edition of a much lauded work, unique on this topic in the English language, has been revised, updated and expanded with much new information and outlines recent results, in particular in relation to the climate problem, mathematical modelling and ice engineering applications. The current book presents the theory, observations, mathematical modelling techniques, and applications of sea ice drift science. The theory is presented from the beginning on a graduate student level, so that students and researchers coming from other fields such as physical oceanography, meteorology, physics, engineering, environmental sciences or geography can use the book as a source book or self-study material. First the drift ice material is presented ending with the concept of ‘ice state’ – the relevant properties in sea ice dynamics. Ice kinematics observations are widely presented with the mathematical analysis methods, and thereafter come drift ice rheology – to close the triangle material – kinematics – stress. The momentum equation of sea ice is derived in detail and its general properties are carefully analysed. Then follow two chapters on analytical models: free drift and drift in the presence of internal friction: These are very important tools in understanding the dynamical behaviour of sea ice. The last topical chapter is numerical models, which are the modern tool to solve ice dynamics problem in short term and long term problems. The closing chapter summarises sea ice dynamics applications and the need of sea ice dynamic knowledge and gives some final remarks on the future of this branch of science."Article| Matti Leppäranta| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The development of an accurate predictive model for the motion and deformation of arctic pack ice is believed by most engineers and scientists concerned with arctic research and development to be of prime importance both for practical operational purposes and for climatological considerations. The report, divided into two parts, describes the analysis of the 1972 results. Part I examines the results with a view toward understanding of the nature of the ice velocity field and determining the minimum scale on which the pack ice may be viewed as a continuum. Part II represents the formulation of an analytic solution of a linear drift model which includes ocean, air and Coriolis forces and models the ice as a viscoelastic medium. The predicted results of this calculation (based on meteorological variables) are compared with observed differential drift measurements with good agreement and a number of conclusions regarding ice drift calculations using a linear model are drawn."Article| W.

☯ Full Synopsis : "Sea ice is a major component of polar environments, especially in the Arctic where it covers the entire Arctic Ocean throughout most of the year. However, in the context of climate change, the Arctic sea ice cover has been declining significantly over the last decades, either in terms of its concentration or thickness. The sea ice cover evolution and climate change are strongly coupled through the albedo positive feedback, thus possibly explaining the Arctic amplification of climate warming. In addition to thermodynamics, sea ice kinematics (drift, deformation) appears as an essential factor in the evolution of the ice cover through a reduction of the average ice age (and consequently of the cover's thickness), or ice export out of the Arctic. This is a first motivation for a better understanding of the kinematical and mechanical processes of sea ice. A more upstream, theoretical motivation is a better understanding of the brittle deformation of geophysical objects across a wide range of scales. Indeed, owing to its very strong kinematics, compared e.g. to the Earth’s crust, an unrivaled kinematical data set is available for sea ice from in situ (e.g. drifting buoys) or satellite observations. Here, we review the recent advances in the understanding of sea ice drift, deformation and fracturing obtained from these data. We focus particularly on the scaling properties in time and scale that characterize these processes, and we emphasize the analogies that can be drawn from the deformation of the Earth’s crust. These scaling properties, which are the signature of long-range elastic interactions within the cover, constrain future developments in the modeling of sea ice mechanics. We also show that kinematical and rheological variables such as average velocity, average strain-rate or strength have significantly changed over the last decades, accompanying and actually accelerating the Arctic sea ice decline."Article| Jerome Weiss| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Abstract: Drifting icebergs and sea ice floes can be serious threats to offshore structures in the Arctic; however, information about their drift is limited. We performed GPS tracking of 9 icebergs and 10 ice floes in the Kanumas area of the Greenland Sea during 2012–2014. The obtained coordinates were used to analyse the drift trajectories, derived velocities, spectra and relative drift of the icebergs and sea ice. This paper presents statistical data on the drift velocities and demonstrates the differences between drifts in the shear ice zone and the central pack or marginal ice zone. The maximum drift speed reached by an iceberg was 1.66 m/s, which happened during strong southerly wind at 66°N. The relative drift of icebergs and adjacent sea ice is strongly dependent on ice conditions and wind, but also it is determined by the different types of applied drag forces. Then, spectral analysis revealed that GPS errors may prevent capturing processes faster than one cycle per hour. In addition, for the first time, we measured the rotation of four icebergs around their vertical axes. Icebergs make an average of between one and two revolutions per day under the periodic tidal current. However, the instantaneous angular velocity reached 0.001 rad/s at some moments. Finally, this paper proposes an iceberg drift model including the rotation. The modelling results are in good agreement with the measured evolution of the icebergs' yaw angles. The drift data and the rotation model can be used when planning offshore activities in the area or as an input for numerical models involving sea ice. Graphical abstract: Highlights: Drift characteristics of 9 icebergs and 10 ice floes are obtained using GPS trackers. Rotations of 4 icebergs around their yaw axes are measured using tracker pairs. A numerical model of iceberg drift involving rotation reproduces measured angular velocities."Article| | Statement ..."
