  • Segments of the ice pack that are firmly frozen to the shore are known as landfast ice.

    Arctic Ocean

  • The thickness of arctic sea-ice cover is also likely to change in response to climate change, and it is possible that this will affect the design of offshore structures for ice loadings, and the design of ice roads used to access structures over landfast ice in winter.

    Infrastructure and climate in the Arctic

  • Density distribution of fish in the presence of whales at the Admiralty inlet landfast ice edge.

    Future change in processes and impacts on Arctic biota

  • Interannual variability of landfast ice thickness in the Canadian High Arctic, 1950 – 89.

    Arctic climate variability in the twentieth century

  • Maximum thickness of landfast ice measured at four coastal locations in the Canadian Arctic, plotted as (a) annual values and (b) five-year moving averages [9].

    Permafrost in the Arctic

  • Figure 6.29 illustrates the variability in the annual maximum thickness of landfast ice measured at four coastal locations in the Canadian Arctic.

    Permafrost in the Arctic

  • Offshore winds push ice away from the coast creating a gap of open water between the landfast ice and the pack ice - a shore lead.

    Arctic Ocean

  • There are places, however, where wide, predictable leads form between the landfast ice and the free-floating pack ice.

    Arctic Ocean

  • Further losses from the ice shelves and landfast sea ice of northern Ellesmere Island are to be expected, …
