AbstractA simple numerical integration method has been developed for predicting growth of ice under snow cover where solar radiation does not play a dominant role. The method is capable of incorporating variations in snow conditions and physical properties of ice and snow during the growth period. Theoretical predictions compare favourably with field observations in Eclipse Sound, Baffin Island, for the winter seasons of 1977-78 and 1978-79.
