The structure (temperature, salinity, density and heat capacity) and transmissivity of sea ice
Entry ID: K132_1989_1990_NZ_1

Abstract: The transparency of sea ice to UV radiation was measured to determine the effects of enhanced UV levels on Antarctic life. The under ice radiance is controlled by the transmission of the sea ice to UV radiation. The fraction of radiation that is transmitted through the ice at different wavelengths was measured. Optical data was also recorded from the visible part of the spectrum and the two data ... View entire text
