LAND-ICE INTERACTION: ICE PILE UP AND RIDE UP ON LAND
Author : Devinder S. Sodhi
In the cold region, it is common for a floating ice sheet, driven by wind and/or water drag forces, to ride up or pile up on the shores of rivers, lakes and seas. In a pile-up event, and intact ice sheet shoves itself into a pile of ice blocks, resulting in breaking of ice sheet into blocks and deformation of rubble pile (Figure 1). Observations of ice pile up and ride up have been recorded for a long time, and sometimes such ice movements have damaged structures and riprap shore protection.
