Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 1060
See the link below for public details on this project.

Taken from the referenced publications:

Sea ice exhibits a marked transition in its fluid transport properties at a critical brine volume fraction Pc of about 5 percent, or temperature Tc of about -5 degrees Celsius for salinity of 5 parts per thousand. For temperatures warmer than Tc brine ... View entire text
