A COMPARISON OF SHIPBORNE METHODS FOR ICE THICKNESS DETERMINATION
Author : Mikko Suominen, Jakke Kulovesi , Mikko Lensu , Jonni Lehtiranta and Pentti Kujala
The determination of along track ice thickness from a moving ship is a regular activity during research cruises to ice covered seas. Traditionally, ice thickness has been estimated as a part of visual ice observations from ice pieces broken and turned to upright position by the ship. As the observations are commonly conducted from the bridge, the distance between the observer and the broken ice is large in comparison to the ice thickness. Therefore, the observations are considered indicative. The accuracy can be improved by determining the thickness of the pieces from video images instead. For this purpose a new stereo camera system has recently been
