<p><strong>Abstract.</strong> Leads within consolidated sea ice control heat exchange between the ocean and the atmosphere during winter, thus constituting an important climate parameter. These narrow elongated features occur when sea ice is fracturing under the action of wind and currents, reducing the local mechanical strength of the ice cover, which in turn impact the sea ice drift pattern. This creates a high demand for a high-quality lead fraction (LF) data set for sea ice modeldoi:10.5194/tc-10-585-2016 fatcat:r4isnxmfrffztmdhboroscheyu
