LABRADOR SEA SHIP IN THE ICE--A PILOT STUDY
The pack ice off the Labrador coast and in the Eastern Arctic is not well defined as an engineering material. In fact, Labrador pack-ice is perhaps the least studied and the least understood ice cover in the Northern Hemisphere. The properties and behaviour of the ice, as well as the transformations it undergoes, must be understood before design criteria for structures and ships which can survive or function in this medium can be established. Such a capability is essential for the more efficient exploitation of northern fish stocks, offshore hydrocarbon development, or the establishment of year-round port facilities.
