This study was part of the development of an ice jam flood forecasting system for Hay River, NWT. 2-D numerical models were used to simulate ice processes in an effort to predict ice jam formation. A summer survey was conducted to finalize the bathymetry of the Hay River Delta. Observations were...
Lake and sea ice and their snow covers are major components of Earthâs cryosphere and act to strongly modify climatic and biological systems. Both ice types serve as an important habitat for micro-fauna and support macro-fauna and strongly modify the exchange of energy, gases, and momentum...
The fact that Canadian Arctic ice is melting is not in contention-it's the rate at which ice is melting and what melting ice means for the future of the Northwest Passage that ignite controversy. According to Huebert (2003). data from satellite imagery suggest that the rate of melt in the...
Competitive Analysis and Value Proposition of Frozen Silt Mats as an alternative to Crane Timber MatsDownload
The construction industry is adopting the modular construction paradigm with the integration of heavy crane usage. Because of the weight of the modules that are to be lifted, which currently can reach as much as hundreds of tons, ensuring proper ground integrity under the lifting equipment is...
Ice-atmosphere interactions in the Canadian high Arctic: implications for the thermo-mechanical evolution of terrestrial ice massesDownload
Canadian High Arctic terrestrial ice masses and the polar atmosphere evolve co-dependently, and interactions between the two systems can lead to feedbacks, positive and negative. The two primary positive cryosphere-atmosphere feedbacks are: 1) The snow/ice-albedo feedback (where area changes in...
The transport of freshwater is analyzed in an eddy-permitting regional model of the sub-polar North Atlantic, focusing on the export of freshwater (in liquid form) through Davis Strait. The results show that in the model simulations there is a limited exchange of freshwater between the Labrador...
Controlled field and laboratory tests were performed to investigate the relationship between ice strength and the maximum ice pressures on vertical piers. The apparatus used in the field tests consisted of a flat indentor (75 cm wide) which was pushed through the ice by hydraulic rams. 27 tests...
This brief manuscript introduces the subject of thermodynamics and the papers of the special issue on thermodynamic aspects of cryobiology. Thermodynamic terminology is defined for the non-specialist.
