Waves in Ice 1

AlisonWith NIWA (National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research) design, project manage, document and build 8 sea ice ‘sea ice accelerometers’ which sit on ice floes and measure the propagation of ocean waves from the edge of the sea ice, deep into the ice pack. Each accelerometer is deployed on an ice floe of similar size – between 10 and 30 m diameter – in a line about 150 km long.
