TL;DR: In this article, the internal structure of sea ice, how this structure develops, and how it affects the bulk properties of the ice, was studied at scales ranging between 100 and 3 m, with an occasional glimpse at a scale of 10−10 m.
Abstract: On the geophysical scale sea ice is a thin, fragile, dynamic, solid layer that forms under the thermodynamic conditions that occur near the Poles. There it serves as a boundary between two much larger fluid bodies — the ocean and the atmosphere. Typical scales of interest would be 103 to 106 m. In the present paper we take a more detailed view, focusing on the ice itself at scales ranging between 100 and 10−3 m, with an occasional glimpse at a scale of 10−10 m. It is our purpose to help the reader understand the internal structure of sea ice, how this structure develops, and how it affects the bulk properties of the ice. Although this is a subject that has received little attention in comparison to similar studies of metals and ceramics, it is, in our view, very important, as many details in the behavior of sea ice are structurally controlled. The variations in structure are, in turn, determined by the environmental conditions under which the ice has formed.
