Data from full-scale measurements of ice loads on lighthouse Norströmsgrund has been analyzed using basic statistical methods. Questions like scaling, duration of ice interaction and correlation of extreme ice loads on different segments of the structure are discussed. Typical ice conditions in the Baltic Sea are described in general and the region is divided into areas with similar ice and ice movements. Indications of strong influence of structure diameter on the effective ice pressure were confirmed by results obtained on other lighthouses in the area. The result can be used in simulations of ice load probabilities for fixed vertical structures with small diameters located in the Baltic Sea.
