The AIDJEX Modeling Group is developing a predictive model of the dynamics and thermodynamics of the arctic ice cover. To date, an elastic-plastic model of the ice behavior has been developed and operated using field data from AIDJEX pilot programs. A complete model using air stress, water stress, and momentum balance for the ice pack will be developed by the spring of 1975 and checked against the AIDJEX field data taken in a year-long experiment from spring 1975 to spring 1976.
