Remarks : IA_FFA, IA_FFB and IA_FFC present an alternative encoding to ICESOD and ICEFLZ under the following rules:1) Major stages of development (old, first-year, young, new) shall be delineated by different partial concentrations in ICEAPC2) Stages of development belonging to the same major stage may be encoded inside using both single or different partial concentrations3) Up to three forms of ice are allowed for each partial concentration group SS / FF, SS1 SS / FF , SS / FF, SS1 SS / FF , SS / FF , SS / FF, SS1 Where SS1 is the stage of development of the younger ice consolidating the main pieces
