AbstractObservations on the nearshore movement of an ice cover were made at two locations in the North Baffin Area of the Canadian Arctic. These measurements were made at half hourly and hourly intervals for periods up to 24 hours. From these measurements, a consistent pattern of offshore ice cover movement has been observed. This has been related to a concommittant lateral shortening of the ice sheet itself. These short term measurements tend to support a tidal jacking mechanism as the cause of the observed movements.
