Ice Ridging Over Various Space Scales
A model of a single ice ridge is constructed based on the laws of mass, impulse and energy balance and on the representation of a ridge as a discontinuity line. Self-oscillations of the ice cover induced by the buildup of two ridges are investigated. The approach to the modeling of an ice cover with numerous ridges in the onedimensional case is formulated.
