AbstractAdams Island, 200 m in diameter and about 3 km offshore in Lancaster Sound, has been established as a site for studying ice interaction processes. Preliminary surveys of ice and environmental conditions over the winter 1981/82 showed ice features reflecting a short-term pile-up as well as long- term thrust on the island. Associated ice pressures were in the range 40-400 kPa. Information on first-year ice cover, icebergs and multi-year floes was also collected.
