AbstractField observations have been made over three winters at a vertically faced wharf in an area of limited horizontal ice movement but substantial vertical movement due to tides. Ice thickness was profiled and vertical ice movements were measured. A reasonably consistent pattern of ice behaviour adjacent to the wharf was established, characterized by the formation of a transition ice zone between the first-year sea ice and the wharf. The behaviour and factors affecting growth of this zone are described.
