Observations of snow properties, superimposed ice, and atmospheric heat fluxes have been performed on firstand second-year sea ice in the western Weddell Sea, Antarctica. Snow in this region is particular as it does usually survive summer ablation. Measurements were performed during Ice Station Polarstern (ISPOL), a 5-week drift station of the German icebreaker RV-Polarstern. Net heat flux to the snow pack was 8 W m, causing only 0.1 to 0.2 m of thinning of both, thinner first and thicker… CONTINUE READING
