AbstractThe present paper deals with the implementation and testing of an ice thickness redistribution model, which is intended for operational use by the Canadian Ice Service (CIS). The model, developed by Savage (2002), is briefly reviewed. The emphasis of this paper is on the implementation in a Particle-In-Cell (PIC) ice dynamics formulation. The model accounts for the evolution of distributions of thickness and concentration of ice in response to mechanical deformation. This is accomplished without resorting to discrete ice categories. A method to incorporate ice growth from open water is also discussed. The results indicate that the model produces appropriate behaviour and trends.
