AbstractIce cover movements and stresses were measured near Adams Island from November 1984 to May 1985. The average horizontal movement rate was 0.1 m/day. Global compressive and tensile strains were less than 1 and 4 %, respectively. Strain rates (measured over 1-2 month periods) were in the order of 10 [-9] s [-1]. Maximum stresses and forces in the ice cover were 500 kPa and 400 kN/m, respectively.
