ICE RIDGE FORMATION - A REVIEW
Author : Jukka Tuhkuri
Ridges are important features of the northern seas. Ridges are elongated accumulations of broken Sea ice processes and form when ice is deforming and fracturing due to forces from winds and currents. Rafting is another form of deformed ice. During rafting, one ice sheet overrides another ice sheet. Several models of ridging and rafting have been proposed. The early models were considering the energy needed in ridge formation. Moving ice floes have kinetic energy, that during ridge formation partly transforms into potential energy and partly is lost through friction and other phenomena. Following the important work by Parmerter and Coon (1972), the research
