Developing techniques to quantify volume of oil burned in ice
Researchers with the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory and Applied Research Associates Inc. recently used measurement instruments both above and below an ice sheet to measure the efficiency of burning oil in ice. The photo shows the below ice instruments used, which include a remotely operated vehicle, with attached acoustic sensors, and a fixed platform, that when testing rests on the bottom of the basin, fitted with acoustic and temperature sensors.
