Summary
Abstract: We observed total thickness (snow thickness + ice thickness) of sea-ice floes along 100m transects using an electromagnetic (EM) sensor.

The data were read from the EM and written by hand into a log book as we moved along the transect. They were then transferred into an Excel spreadsheet.

The parameters included are:
- distance along transect
- conductivity (vertical)
- conductivity (horizontal)
- total thickness (derived from vertical and horizontal conductivities)
