Gas flux over sea ice and calcium carbonate concentration in sea ice from the SIPEX II voyage of the Aurora Australis
Entry ID: SIPEX_II_Gas_Flux

Abstract: Gas Flux over Sea Ice

We observed amount of gas exchange between sea ice and atmosphere. At the ice station, semi-automated chambers developed in Japan, were used for measurement of air-sea ice CO2 flux. These chambers could be used to examine spatial variability and also temporal variability of gas flux over sea ice. Samples were also taken from the snow and ice in order to measure ...
