ASPeCt ship-based observations during the SIPEX II voyage of the Aurora Australis, 2012Entry ID: SIPEX_II_ASPECT
Abstract: This dataset contains observations of ice conditions taken from the bridge of the RV Aurora Australis during SIPEX 2012, following the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research/CliC Antarctic Sea Ice Processes and Climate [ASPeCt] protocols. See aspect.antarctica.gov.au
Observations include total and partial concentration, ice type, thickness, floe size, topography, and snow cover in each of ... three primary ice categories; open water characteristics, and weather summary.
The dataset is comprised of the scanned pages of a single logbook, which holds hourly observations taken by observers while the ship was moving through sea-ice zone.

Quality The observation location sometimes could not be occupied due to requirements by the ship's crew or the presence of fellow expeditioners.
Ship movement between SIPEX 2012 stations was often not sufficient for hourly observations to be conducted as the required minimum separation from the previous observation point was not achieved.
