Spectral Light Transmittance [Perovich, D.]


While measuring albedo was the primary focus of the optical program, we were also interested in determining the the amount of solar energy transmitted through the ice cover. We measured spectral transmittance for a variety of ice types, including cold snow-covered ice, melting snow-covered ice, bare ice, melting ice, ponded ice, and leads.
