[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Ice samples were collected by means of ice coring with 9 and 13 cm diameter ice corers on a total of 15 stations in the 115-130 degrees E sector off East Antarctica in September and early October 2007 during the Sea Ice Physics and Ecosystem eXperiment (SIPEX).

Ice temperature profiles were recorded for one core at each station. Ice cores were cut into 10 cm sections and analysed for ice texture, ... View entire text
