Intermittency of principal stress directions within Arctic sea ice

Abstract : The brittle deformation of Arctic sea ice is not only characterized by strong spatial heterogeneity as well as intermittency of stress and strain-rate amplitudes, but also by an intermittency of principal stress directions, with power law statistics of angular fluctuations, long-range correlations in time, and multifractal scaling. This intermittency is much more pronounced than that of wind directions, i.e., is not a direct inheritance of the turbulent forcing.
