AbstractA new ice thickness distribution formulation was developed as part of the Canadian Ice Service (CIS) operational forecasting model. The new approach is based on considering the ice cover to consist of level and ridged parts. The model accounts for the evolution of the concentration and thickness of each part in response to mechanical deformation. This paper outlines the implementation of the ice thickness redistribution model, and describes tests of the model based on idealized deformation scenarios that were used to examine the performance of the model.
