Abstract: The permeability of sea ice to brine under naturally occurring conditions was investigated. The data is important for determining the rate at which nutrients are supplied to sea ice algae and the rate of snow ice formation and the processes which control it. The results are to be applied to models of the Antarctic pack ice and initial data collection was concentrated on the fast ice area to refine ... View entire text
