ICE THICKNESS BY SHEAR WAVE PROPAGATION

Because of the lack of success in using normal incident reflected acoustic longitudinal waves for sea ice thickness measurements and the time consuming process entailed by refraction acoustic ice thickness measurements, a method of ice thickness measurement was tried using normal incident reflected acoustic shear waves or "S" waves. This technique was used for sea ice measurements off Pt. Barrow, Alaska during the summer of 1971.
