Oceanographic and sea ice measurements to determine the influence of platelet ice on the freezing of land fast sea ice
Entry ID: K131_2003_2004_NZ_1

Abstract: An understanding of the formation of platelet ice in McMurdo Sound and consequently its influence on the formation of land fast sea ice was investigated over a winter season when ice formation begins until it starts to break up. Data was collected from current meters, acoustic doppler current profilers (ADCP), water sampling and conductivity temperature depth (CTD) probes for oceanographic ... View entire text
