Application of Aerosondes to Melt-Pond Observations over Arctic Sea Ice
Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology
Continuous observation of sea ice using a small robotic aircraft called the Aerosonde was made over the Arctic Ocean from Barrow, Alaska, on 20-21 July 2003. Over a region located 350 km off the coast of Barrow, images obtained from the aircraft were used to characterize the sea ice and to determine the fraction of melt ponds on both multiyear and first-year ice. Analysis of the data indicates that melt-pond fraction increased northward from 20% to 30% as the ice fraction increased. However,doi:10.1175/2007jtecha955.1 fatcat:ipsewff6h5hyhlctwbimpd6ady
