Title Physical and structural characteristics of Weddell Sea pack ice
Date 1987
Description Recent studies by CRREL researchers of the dynamics and thermodynamics of sea ice in the Antarctic have included investigations of the physical and structural properties of pack ice in the Weddell Sea. The formation of pack ice and its subsequent movement from source areas in the Weddell Sea is particularly important in modifying ocean-atmosphere and water mass development both in and beyond the Weddell Sea embayment. The pack ice area affected by Weddell Sea processes is 8-10 million square kilometers (Ackley 1979a), thus representing about one - third of the total area os sea ice encircling Antarctica at its maximum extent.
