Subjectice sheet growth; flooded ice
AbstractA simple theory is developed which predicts the growth of both pure and saline ice sheets. An extension of the theory is used to determine the optimum flooding rate for the construction of ice platforms. Experiments carried out in a small ice tank generally confirm the theory. A few compressive strength measurements were also made on both the underlying ice sheets and the flooded ice which were grown in the experiments.
