This paper presents an existence theory for solitary waves at the interface between a thin ice sheet (modelled using the Cosserat theory of hyperelastic shells) and an ideal fluid (of finite depth and in irrotational motion) for sufficiently large values of a dimensionless parameter γ . We establish the existence of a minimiser of the wave energy   subject to the constraint  , where   is the horizontal impulse and  , and show that the solitary waves detected by our variational method converge (after an appropriate rescaling) to solutions to the nonlinear Schrödinger equation with cubic focussing nonlinearity as  .

Cette note présente une théorie d'existence d'ondes solitaires à l'interface entre une couche de glace mince (modélisée par la théorie des coques hyperélastiques de Cosserat) et un fluide parfait (de profondeur finie et irrotationnel), pour des valeurs suffisamment grandes d'un paramètre sans dimension γ . Nous montrons l'existence d'un minimiseur de l'énergie   de l'onde sous la contrainte  , où   représente l'impulsion horizontale et  . Nous démontrons que les ondes solitaires trouvées par notre méthode variationnelle convergent (après un changement d'échelle approprié) vers des solutions de l'équation de Schrödinger cubique focalisante, lorsque  .
