This report reviews the process of creating ice sheets in the Institute of Ocean Technology Ice Tank, as well as characterizing said ice sheets for data analysis. Both current and former methods of creation (specifically fluid solution compositions) are discussed in the report. Also, the methods of characterizing the ice are examined by documenting the various ice property tests to which ice samples are subjected.
