Abstract:Based on investigations by the SAE, a comprehensive characterization of East Antarctic pack ice is presented and features of formation and distribution of fast ice in Antarctica related to various factors. Crystal structure, physical and mechanical properties, spring-summer breakup and snow-ice layer thickness in the pack are discussed. Practical recommendations on summer over-ice transport operations are offered as a result of studies on ice structure and density. Data are presented in maps, tables and graphs.
