Record #101258:

Arctic sea ice characteristics and associated atmosphere--ice interactions in summer inferred from SMMR data and drifting buoys: 1979-1984 / Roger G. Barry, James A. Maslanik.

Title: Arctic sea ice characteristics and associated atmosphere--ice interactions in summer inferred from SMMR data and drifting buoys: 1979-1984 / Roger G. Barry, James A. Maslanik.
Author(s): Barry, Roger G.
Maslanik, James A.
Date: 1989.
Abstract: SMMR-derived sea-ice concentrations for November 1978-October 1984 in Canada Basin are examined to determine temporal and spatial scales of variability in ice concentration and extent. Large areas of ice of low concentration were observed in late summer in four of six years studied, which are interpreted as true reductions in concentration. Appear to be mixed big floes and open-water areas of irregular shape and indefinite duration. Comparison with buoy-measured surface pressure and winds suggests that these areas are associated with regions of strong winds and divergence beneath low pressure systems.
