AIDJEX Bulletin No. 23 contains reports on the continuing work of the AIDJEX numerical modeling group. Papers deal with such subjects as the energetics of pressure ridging, the theory of sea-ice movement, the roughness parameter of sea ice, the mechanics of rafting, and similarity constants in the planetary boundary layer. An analysis, by Hunkins, of oceanographic data from the 1972 AIDJEX Pilot Study is also included, as well as a scheme by Hibler, Mock, and Tucker for classifying the regional and seasonal variations of ridges. Finally there is a description of the AIDJEX Lead Experiment, a program of atmospheric and oceanic observations at a newly created lead which will be conducted offshore from Barrow, Alaska during March and April 1974.
