Sea Ice Melt Ponds: Spectral Albedo

Summary

Spectral albedos (from 350-2500nm) were measured every 5 m along the transect line, according to a tape measure laid out along the transect daily. The instrument used was an Analytical Spectral Devices FS3 (ASD FS3). Two spectrums were collected at each location, the first with the instrument oriented upward looking, and the second with the instrument oriented downward looking.
