ASPeCt bridge-based sea-ice observations - 2007 to 2013
Entry ID: ASPECT_2007_2013

Abstract: The Antarctic Sea ice Processes and Climate [ASPeCt] data sets submitted here have been collected systematically from the bridge of an icebreaker, while it transited through the pack ice. Quantifiable observations of sea ice thickness and related characteristics of the sea ice, snow, ocean and surface atmosphere are recorded hourly while the vessel moves through the sea ice. If the vessel is ... View entire text
