Relative permittivity of brine samples taken from 2 MHz to 4 GHz across a range of temperatures during the SIPEX II voyage of the Aurora Australis, 2012
Entry ID: SIPEX_II_Brine_Permittivity

Abstract: This dataset contains data resulting from the measurement of brine samples extracted from the sea-ice during the 2012 SIPEX 2 (Sea Ice Physics and Ecosystems Experiment) marine science voyage. The Brine was collected from partially drilled holes in the ice using suction. In some of these cases the brine analysed came from holes which correspond to permeability measurements. In these cases a core ... View entire text

SALINOMETERS Ancillary Description
Quality For some of the samples the salinity was very close to that of sea water indicating that ocean water from below had made its way into the brine sample. This would most likely be a problem for the samples from site 4 as the brine was collected at the termination of the permeability experiments which last on the order of 20 min to 1 hour. For the samples at station 7 the permeability experiments ... View entire text
