Physical Ice Sampling

Sea Ice Physical sampling is conducted each year at designated stations. Sampling included, but was not limited to taking ice cores, measuring thickness, temperature, salinity and conductivity. At each station, physical properties of sea ice in the vicinity were observed. By measuring the temperature and salinity of the sea ice it is possible to calculate the brine volume present in the sea ice and thus get an estimate for the ice porosity. The total thickness and freeboard of the ice floe was also recorded. Physical sampling activities were generally conducted in concert with scatterometer and SBR EM scans, and were constrained by the presence / absence of sea ice.
