AbstractIce pressure ridges in the southern Beaufort Sea near Tuktoyaktuk were surveyed in April 1986. Sail cross-section profiles and ice-block dimensions of ridges of extreme heights were measured at several locations along the outer edge of the landfast ice. Statistical distributions of sail heights as well as correlations between sail dimension and between ice block dimensions are obtained. Geographical distribution of sail dimensions and longitudinal changes along individual ridges are examined.
