THE MOVEMENT OF ARCTIC LANDFAST ICE--ITS MEASUREMENT AND INFLUENCE ON OFFSHORE DRILLING

Discusses the effect of ice movement, types of ice motion, formation and extent of fast ice, techniques for measuring motion of fast ice with reference to the shore and to the seabed using wire reel and telemetry systems. Briefly reviews how the motions of land fast ice can influence offshore resource development. Because the way the projects described in this paper have been sponsored no details are given of the movements which have been measured. Further details of the equipment can be made available on request.
