It is believed that ice loading can be a stationary process at least sometimes during the state of continuous brittle crushing. Confidence in the distribution law, stationarity in time, and autocorrelation function of local ice loads is the key factor for assessment of such loads and their successful simulation. Good understanding of the load process on the level of a single transducer record can be helpful in future analysis and simulation of loads on wider contact areas.

In this paper local loads, simultaneously measured by two middle subpanels at the Norströmsgrund lighthouse in March 2001, are studied. Stationary time series of lognormal origin of 50 seconds duration are extracted from both of the subpanel records. From the studied data, stationarity was not observed simultaneously at different subpanels. The correlation of one stationary subpanel record with simultaneous record of the other subpanel found to be weak.

A simple function with good fit to the observed autocorrelation curve of stationary load fragments is suggested. The findings are compared with parameters obtained for local loads in previous studies. A transition from autocorrelation function for raw lognormal data to autocorrelation function of logarithmic normal data is performed.
