ARCTIC ICE DYNAMICS JOINT EXPERIMENT BULLETIN NO. 21

Some recent theoretical work is reported in this Bulletin. The problem of sea ice lies somewhere between plasticity, geophysical fluid dynamics, heat transfer, and rigid body mechanics, and its solution requires a group effort in which no single viewpoint should prevail. Various concepts pertaining to small-scale ice mechanics are given increased attention and have yielded approaches to realistic flow laws and to a method of coupling the dynamics and thermodynamics of the ice by means of the thickness distribution.
