Short summary
The evolution of two large Southern Ocean icebergs, in terms of area and thickness, are used to study the melting and fragmentation laws of icebergs. The area and thickness are estimated by the mean of satellite images and radar altimeter data. Two classical formulations of melting are tested and a fragmentation law depending on the sea temperature and iceberg velocity is proposed and tested. The size distribution of the pieces generated by fragmentation is also estimated.
The evolution of two large Southern Ocean icebergs, in terms of area and thickness, are used to...
