Measurements of the polarisation of the Antarctic sky from the sea ice edge at Cape Bird and from a ship journey from Hobart to McMurdo Sound
Entry ID: K041_1997_1998_NZ_1

Abstract: The polarisation of the Antarctic sky was captured near the sea ice edge at Cape Bird to complement previous studies of the sky polarisation seen at Wellington (New Zealand), Scott Base, Tent Island and at Lake Vanda (Antarctica). The polarisation was seen to change from one site to another due to albedo effects (the way the light reflects from the surrounding ground) being much higher in ... View entire text
