Abstract: In winter, ice is often present along the shores of water bodies. The vertical motions of such ice can affect winter coastal dynamics and structures supported by offshore pilings. These motions are often due to waves generated offshore, in the ice-free area, and propagating shoreward. Then the shoaling of waves under a shore bound ice sheet is of some interest. The results may also provide insight to ice cracking and to variations in sediment motion and scouring under ice.
