I was honoured during my voyage onboard the Chinese research ship Xue Long last summer to be asked to write on risk management in ice for the Polar Issue of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers’ (SNAME) magazine Marine Technology. Fortunately for me, I was very ably assisted by Ivana Kubat of the National Research Council of Canada, who has long experience in working with many of the risk-management schemes I discuss. The article is posted to my publications on this website but the whole issue is very well put together, covers a large range of current topics related to polar navigation from a technical perspective, and is well worth a read.
