Abstract: DC Electrical:

In order to relate the fluid permeability to the electrical properties of sea ice, we also took measurements of the vertical component of the DC electrical conductivity tensor of sea ice. Cores extending to the bottom of an ice floe were taken and laid out holder. With the exception of sites 7 and 8 where we encountered a slush layer below the hard ice and could not core down to ...

Quality For the moment the spread sheet contains an ice type column which only allows for a statement of granular or columnar ice for each 10 cm section. At 10 cm resolution one can have a mix of the two. Exactly how we will quantify each section with a mix if ice types is yet to be determined and as such this data set will change as the photos are analysed in greater detail.
