Thick and thin sections and salinity and temperature profiles from natural refrozen and artificially refrozen sea ice cracks
Entry ID: K131_2001_2003_NZ_1

Abstract: Large marine organisms, specifically foraminifers and copepods, were collected from the sea ice, brine and water column from thin ice north of Beaufort Island at the beginning of the warming period when the brine channels in the sea ice are widening, providing a conduit for organisms at the bottom of the ice to migrate to the top. A suit of ice cores were collected from 9 stations in sea ice ... View entire text
