Sea Ice Mass Balance in the Antarctic - Ice Buoys
Entry ID: SIMBA_Ice_Buoys

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Three ice mass-balance buoys (IMBs) were deployed on 2, 4 and 12 October 2007 at sites Brussels and Liège at locations close to the clean sampling sites during a 27 day occupation of an ice station floe (Ice Station Belgica(ISB)) in the Bellingshausen Sea. IMBs were designed and constructed by the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory and equipped with data acquisition systems mounted ... View entire text

Purpose: The data set helped develop a time series of sea and ice properties in a remote way. Additionally, this testing was done to understand the ice representations in respect to seasonal changes. Through the understanding of ice thickness and property variations, better models can be developed to understand future ice measurements.
