Record #119660:

Remote measurement of sea ice thickness using electromagnetic sounding / Austin Kovacs.

Title: Remote measurement of sea ice thickness using electromagnetic sounding / Austin Kovacs.
Author(s): Kovacs, Austin.
Date: 1992.
Publisher: Seattle, WA: University of Washington, Applied Physics Laboratory, Polar Science Center
In: Report of the Sea Ice Thickness Workshop, 19-21 November 1991, New Carrollton, Maryland. (1992.),
Abstract: Discusses use of airborne electromagnetic systems for sounding multiyear sea ice, operating in VLF frequency band at 1 to 200 kHz. Such systems overcome limitations associated with VHF-UHF systems; one is described which uses electromagnetic induction to measure distance between towed antenna and ice--water interface. Since 1984, five field tests have been made, and ice thickness can be determined to within about 5% of true thickness.
