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.

THICKNESS CHANGES IN FRAM STRAIT AND THE ARCTIC BASIN DURING 1990?2013 FROM MOORED SONARS WITH EMPHASIZE ON Sea ice processes MINIMUM YEARS 2007 & 2012
Author : Gunnar Spreen , Sebastian Gerland , and Edmond Hansen
Arctic Sea ice processes has become significantly thinner during the first decade of the 21st century [e.g., Haas et al., 2008; Kwok and Rothrock, 2009; Vaughan et al., 2013], with concurrent changes in age composition toward more first-year ice (Sea ice processes of not more than one winter growth) at the expense of old ice (Sea ice processes that has survived at least one summer melt season) [e.g., Comiso, 2012; Vaughan et al., 2013]. We examine 24 years (1990?2013) of monthly ice thickness distributions from the Transpolar Drift in Fram Strait, as observed by upward looking sonars (ULS) moored on the seabed. An
