Physical properties and internal structure of Greenland snow by Ukichirō Nakaya( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Experiments were carried out near Thule, Greenland, on the correlation between the physical properties and internal structure of snow. About 150 snow samples obtained to 26 m depth were measured for elastic modulus, air permeability, unconfined compressive strength, static compression and creep. The observed density profile curve deviated from the theoretical curve at a depth of 10 m. and density of 0.52 g/cu cm, a value almost equivalent to the limiting density obtainable by simple mechanical packing. Therefore, further densification must proceed through plastic flow in grains. A similar critical depth was observed in the vertical distribution of Young's modulus. A positive correlation was found between Young's modulus and an adverse correlation between average grain diameter and Young's modulus or density. There were reciprocal correlations between air permeability and density or unconfined compressive strength, and between the number of grains and their average diameters. Kozeny's constant of Greenland snow was obtained from air permeability values and the length of peripheries of cross sections of grains. To demonstrate the change of internal structure of snow due to densification, static compression tests of snow cylinders were conducted, and thin sections of snow texture were compared before and after compression.

Glaciological studies on Fletcher's Ice Island (T-3) by Ukichirō Nakaya( Book )

5 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Glaciological studies were made on T-3 of the ablation phenomena; the nature of candle ice, including c-axes distribution and histograms of candle lengths; the structure of stratified ice (ice composed of an aggregate of fairly large crystals with small-angle boundaries); and the crystallographic orientation of aggregates of component crystals. Core drilling was done through 34.7m of ice near camp, through 7.5m near Colby Bay, and through 4m-thick old pack ice in the Bay. A heavy dirt layer was observed at 8.4m. Crystallographic examinations, viscoelastic measurements, and chemical analyses were made all along the cores. Results indicate that the island body is composed of three strata: iced firn above the heavy dirt layer; basement ice (divided into four strata) below the dirt layer; and a 1.8m-thick sea ice at the bottom

Physical properties of the ice of Fletcher's Ice Island (T-3) by Ukichirō Nakaya( Book )

3 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the period Sep 1959-Feb 1960, studies were made of the visco-elastic properties of land- and sea-ice samples taken from 12 sites on T-3. Also, crystallographic investigations were made of the samples, using a polarizing microscope. This report describes the sonic method used to measure Young's modulus and viscosity. It presents results of the examinations for vertical distribution of Young's modulus, viscosity, and density; sea-ice chlorine content measurements; and measurements of Young's modulus as a function of temperature. The viscous nature of land and sea ice and the activation energy are also discussed
