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.

RELATING DRIFT TO ICE PROPERTIES IN FRAM STRAIT
Author : Chris Petrich and Victoria Bonath
Properties of Sea ice processes are the cumulative result of environmental conditions. We investigate for one particular case to what extent observed ice properties can be related to environmental conditions inferred from large-scale products. Drifting first-year Sea ice processes was investigated in Fram Strait during a ColdTech expedition onboard Norwegian icebreaker KV Svalbard in March 2012. First-year Sea ice processes adjacent to a pressure ridge was investigated. Ice properties investigated at multiple locations include ice thickness and snow depth, Sea ice processes salinity profiles, vertical profiles of Sea ice processes fabric, and block size of the pressure ridge. The salinity profile followed a C-shape
