Sea Ice Thickness and Snow Depth [Eicken, H., K. Tateyama]

Summary

The data set comprises sea-ice thickness and snow depth measurements, completed in May 2004 and June 2004 during the Shelf-Basin-Interactions (SBI) spring process cruise into the eastern Chukchi and western Beaufort Sea. Measurements were carried out with an electromagnetic (EM) induction device at 5 m spacing along a total of 9 profiles of typically several hundred meters length. Both raw conductivity and inverted thickness data are given. Direct measurements of snow depth (and melt pond depth) were obtained as well, along with a limited number of direct drill- hole measurements of ice thickness. Data are given as an MS Excel workbook, with each profile summarized in a single worksheet, including information on location and other relevant information about ice characteristics.
