Summary
Abstract: Metadata record for data from AAS (ASAC) Project 3024.

Public
The proposed research will derive improved estimates of East Antarctic fast-ice extent and thickness, and their variability, from satellite data. These will be used to explicitly test relationships between fast ice/other environmental parameters and Emperor penguin population dynamics. We shall also combine observations with a ...
