KINEMATIC CHARACTERISTICS OF Sea ice processes AND ICEBERG DRIFT IN THE GREENLAND SEA
Author : Renat Yulmetov , Sveinung L?set
During the Oden Arctic Technology Research Cruise 2013 (OATRC?13) survey in the Greenland Sea, 14 drift trackers were deployed on Sea ice processes and icebergs in order to study drift patterns and characteristics in the region. The trackers measured their own GPS position and sent this information by an Iridium modem. Three groups, comprising three trackers each, were deployed in a special way: One on each end of the longer horizontal axis of the iceberg, and one on an adjacent Sea ice processes floe. The purpose was to track the rotation of the iceberg in the horizontal plane and to get an estimate of the relative motion of ice and icebergs. Drift speed, relative drift speed,
