Characteristics of Arctic sea ice from remote-sensing data and their relationship to atmospheric processes / Roger G. Barry, Martin W. Miles, Richard C. Cianflone, Gregory R. Scharfen, Russell C. Schnell.

Title: Characteristics of Arctic sea ice from remote-sensing data and their relationship to atmospheric processes / Roger G. Barry, Martin W. Miles, Richard C. Cianflone, Gregory R. Scharfen, Russell C. Schnell.

Date: 1989.
Publisher: Cambridge: International Glaciological Society
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1989.), Vol. 12 (1989)
Abstract: Presents new data on leads in Arctic sea ice and surface-melt phenomena, based on mapping of satellite visible images. Lead orientations in Beaufort Sea are broadly correlated with geostrophic wind direction and show similar synoptic scale patterns. Preliminary results of airborne 1.06 μm lidar transects over Baffin Bay demonstrate potential for high-resolution mapping of open-water areas and, in winter/spring, ice-crystal plumes. Some of these sub-visible plumes are observed to penetrate Arctic inversion. Snow-melt maps for entire Arctic prepared for four summer seasons have been used to derive surface-albedo data. From data, variability of surface-energy balance is estimated to be equivalent to 0.6 m of ice melt.
