[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Data set contains light transfer measurements in Antarctic snow pack using visible-near infrared spectroradiometer and PAR sensors. These measurements were done during FINNARP 2009 expedition in December 2009 and in January 2010. Spectroradiometer measurements were done in 7 different locations (points). PAR sensors measured continuously in fixed location.

With the spectroradiometer the light ... View entire text

Purpose: To study how the light attenuates in different types of snow in different wavelengths. Antarctica provides a good laboratory for these measurements as the atmosphere and snow are clean.
