Sea Ice Mass Balance in the Antarctic (SIMBA), Version 1

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set provides different measurements of Antarctic sea ice data collected as part of the Sea Ice Mass Balance in the Antarctic (SIMBA) program. The observation program was carried out in the fall of 2007 and the spring of 2009 during a drift program of the Nathaniel B. Palmer icebreaker along with a buoy network established on the Antarctic sea ice. Measurements of ice thickness, temperature profiles, large-scale deformation, and other sea ice characteristics were made.
