ARCTIC ICE DYNAMICS JOINT EXPERIMENT-BULLETIN NO. 17--INVESTIGATION OF THE ICE CONDITIONS IN THE ARCTIC SEAS AND METHODS OF FORECASTING AND COMPUTATION

Bulletin No. 17 is the second half of a translation of Volume 303 of the Proceedings (Trudy) of the Arctic and Antarctic Scientific Research Institute. The first half (AIDJEX Bulletin No. 16) dealt with the computation and forecasting of ice-cover variations and with problems related to ice drift. This second half covers (1) the relation of wind and pressure fields to ice coverage fluctuations, (2) the formation and deterioration of the ice cover, and (3) methodological topics connected with the study of the parameters and deformation of the ice cover.
