      Covering more than seven percent of the earth’s surface, sea ice is crucial to the functioning of the biosphere—and is a key component in our attempts to understand and combat climate change. With On Sea Ice, geophysicist W. F. Weeks delivers a natural history of sea ice, a fully comprehensive and up-to-date account of our knowledge of its creation, change, and function. 2. Drift ice material Matti Leppäranta. 3. Ice kinematics Matti Leppäranta. 4. Sea ice rheology Matti Leppäranta. 5. Equation of drift ice motion Matti Leppäranta. 6. Free drift Matti Leppäranta. 7. Drift in the presence of internal friction Matti Leppäranta. 8. Numerical modelling Matti Leppäranta. 9. Use and need for knowledge on ice.

    Hokkaido's drift ice comes from the Amur River, 1,km away on the border between China and Russia. When the fresh water from the Amur River enters the Sea of Okhotsk, this lowers the salt concentration in that part of the sea, causing the water to freeze and form drift is it?: Gigantic pieces of ice covering the sea. Iceberg - Iceberg - Iceberg distribution and drift trajectories: In the Antarctic, a freshly calved iceberg usually begins by moving westward in the Antarctic Coastal Current, with the coastline on its left. Since its trajectory is also turned to the left by the Coriolis force owing to Earth’s rotation, it may run aground and remain stationary for years before moving on.

    “Drift ice” (Ryuhyo in Japanese) is the name for sea ice that is moved by winds and currents. Drift ice was still visible around Sakhalin and Hokkaido on the last day of winter, when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite acquired the third image.   One incredible ice floe covered twenty-four square miles. It rose twenty feet above the sea and reached an estimated depth of feet. The estimated weight was six thousand million tons, a floating glacier, expanding year by year, as the ancient ice, hundreds of years old, remained frozen, fresh snow accumulating and congealing into new ice /5(7).

The science of sea ice drift through its year history to the present day is explained. The text includes the geophysical theory, observations from field programs, and mathematical models. Topics covered include the science of sea ice drift, forecasting drift velocity based on volume, size and shape, sea ice ridging and remote sensing.

"Thus, I unconditionally recommend this book to the serious student of climate change as well as to the more experienced researcher involved in any aspect of sea ice research as a most valuable resource on the subject of sea ice and its role in the global system." (Polar Biol, ).

Ice Drift, written for ages and gradesis the story of two Inuit brothers trapped on an ice floe in the Arctic. The brothers were seal hunting when an iceberg hit their floe and started them on a six month battle for survival against the cold, ice, water, animals and threatened starvation/5.

This study presents an evaluation of Arctic sea-ice drift speed for the period – in a state-of-the-art coupled regional model for the Arctic, called HIRHAM-NAOSIM. In particular, the dependency of the drift speed on the near-surface wind speed and sea-ice conditions is presented.

About this book. Sea Ice in the Arctic provides in-depth information about the sea ice in the Arctic at scales from paleoenvironmental variability to more contemporary changes during the past and present centuries.

The book is based on several decades of research related to sea ice in the Arctic and its variability, sea ice process studies as well as implications of the sea ice variability on.

Visualize sea ice extent data for the Arctic and more recently, the Antarctic. View and compare sea ice extent data for any year or any combination of years between and (including near-real-time daily data).

Get daily sea ice extent values by rolling your cursor over a line in the graph. The subsequent chapters describe the properties, structure, freezing, and composition of sea ice and ice drift.

These topics are followed by discussions on the crystallographic features, and mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties of ice. The concluding chapter examines the factor influencing ice growth.

One was pioneered by the Norwegian explorer, diplomat, and humanitarian, Fridtjof Nansen, who froze his ship the Fram in the Arctic sea ice off the New Siberian Islands and waited for her to drift westward across the Arctic Ocean during –   Over the past 20 years the study of the frozen Arctic and Southern Oceans and sub-arctic seas has progressed at a remarkable pace.

This third edition of Sea Ice gives insight into the very latest understanding of the how sea ice is formed, how we measure (and model) its extent, the biology that lives within and associated with sea ice and the effect of climate change on its : David N. Thomas. Seasonal ice drift in the Sea of Okhotsk by the northern coast of Hokkaidō, Japan, has become a tourist attraction, and is one of the Soundscapes of Japan.

The Sea of Okhotsk is the southernmost area in the Northern Hemisphere where drift ice may be observed. See also. Drifting ice station; Iceberg; Ice shove; Lead (sea ice) Polynya.

Those ice floes that the transpolar drift still carries to the Fram Strait are for the most part formed in the open sea, i.e., in regions of the Arctic Oceans far from the coasts.Wednesday 6 May 2pm – 3pm EST (UTC/GMT-4) The NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC) continues to expand its collection of snow data, including through NASA’s recent SnowEx campaign, the AirBorne Snow Observatory (ASO) mission, and ongoing global snow cover products from the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer.
