This quantity constitutes the court cases of the IUTAM Symposium on 'Scaling legislation in Ice Mechanics and Ice Dynamics', held in Fairbanks, Alaska from thirteenth to sixteenth of June 2000. Ice mechanics bargains with primarily intact ice: during this self-discipline, descriptions of the movement and deformation of Arctic/ Antarctic and river/lake ice demand the improvement of bodily established constitutive and fracture types over a massive variety in scale: 0.01 m - 10 km. Ice dynamics, nevertheless, bargains with the move of damaged ice: descriptions of an combination of ice floes demand exact modeling of momentum move throughout the sea/ice process, back over a massive variety in scale: 1 km (floe scale) - 500 km (basin scale). For ice mechanics, the emphasis on lab-scale (0.01 - half m) learn con trasts with functions on the scale of order 1 km (ice-structure interplay, icebreaking); many vital upscaling questions stay to be explored.
