Integrating Elastic and Viscous Properties of Ice for Ocean Wave Propagation

INI Seminar Room 1
As a material, ice covers are mixtures of various forms of solid, water (with or without salt), and air. They are heterogeneous under all scales. A number of mathematical models have been proposed to describe the dispersive/dissipative property of an ice cover. In this talk we examine one of such models that integrates both the energy storage and dissipation capability of an ice cover. The mathematical complexity resulted in this very simple looking model, and its skill of predicting spectral dissipation will be discussed.
