Type

FIELDWORK

Research/Observation Title

Sea Spray observation in RV MIRAI cruise

Science Summary (common)

Marine disasters caused by ship icing occur frequently in cold regions. The typical growth mechanism of sea spray icing is as follows. First, sea spray is generated from the bow of the ship. Next, the spray drifts and impinges upon the superstructure, after which there is a wet growth of ice from the brine water flow. To address icing on the ship, we focus on the impinging seawater spray. We investigated the drop size of seawater spray and made sampling of superstructure ice accretion on R/V Mirai.
