Record #166673:

High interannual variability of sea ice thickness in the Arctic region / Seymour Laxon, Neil Peacock, Doug Smith.

Title: High interannual variability of sea ice thickness in the Arctic region / Seymour Laxon, Neil Peacock, Doug Smith.
Author(s): Laxon, Seymour.
Peacock, Neil.
Smith, Doug.
Date: 2003.
In: Nature. (2003.), Vol. 425(6961) (2003)
Abstract: Presents determination of Arctic sea ice thickness field and variability over period 1993-2001 from 65° N to 81.5° N. Uses measurements from radar altimeters on board satellites ERS-1 and ERS-2 covering entire circumference of Arctic Ocean and more than half of area of permanent sea ice cover. Distinguishes consolidated first-year and multi-year ice from open water, leads and new ice and derives ice freeboard assuming radar echoes originate at ice/snow interface. Reports high-frequency interannual variability in mean thickness dominated by changes in amount of summer melt, rather than in circulation. Suggests continued increase in melt season length would lead to further thinning of Arctic sea ice.
