S-band waveguide measurements of sea-ice samples ranging from 2.6 to 3.95 GHz during the SIPEX II voyage of the Aurora Australis, 2012
Entry ID: SIPEX_II_Waveguide

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This dataset contains data relating to an experimental method in which sea-ice samples were measured in an S-band microwave waveguide. This was conducted as a part of the 2012 SIPEX 2 (Sea Ice Physics and Ecosystems EXperiment) marine science voyage.

A specially designed waveguide apparatus was connected to an Agilent FieldFox Portable Network Analyzer. Small parallelopipeds (7 cm X 3 cm X 1.9 ... View entire text

Quality In some cases the horizontal or vertical core section broke during removal, or while attempting temperature measurements following the microwave measurements.

This measurement method is experimental - an inversion and error analysis will need to be performed on this data to extract the complex permittivity tensor. Additionally the time ... View entire text
