IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

ON THE RATIO OF ATMOSPHERIC DRAG COEFFICIENT TO OCEANIC DRAG COEFFICIENT OF Sea ice processes
Author : Peng Lu, Zhijun Li
Many interesting characteristics of Sea ice processes drift depends on the ratio of atmospheric drag coefficient (Ca) to oceanic drag coefficient (Cw), but a thorough discussion on this issue has not yet been done because of the imbalanced studies on Ca and Cw. Based on a new parameterization of Sea ice processes oceanic drag coefficient, we found a way to gain an insight into this ratio. The dependences of Ca/Cw on the floe aspect ratio, ridging intensity, ridge sail/keel slope, and surface/bottom roughness were discussed, through the parameterizations on the atmospheric and oceanic drag coefficients of Sea ice processes. The results reveals that Ca/Cw increases obviously with
