AbstractIce stresses and environmental factors at Nanisivik wharf on Strathcona Sound in the Canadian Arctic are reported for the winter 1985/86. The ice regime is that of landfast first- year sea ice that attains a maximum thickness of 1.6 m in May. The primary mechanism of generating ice loads at this location appears to be temperature-induced strains in the ice cover. A thermal analysis based on secondary creep behaviour predicts thermal stresses lower than those measured.
