This study compares sea ice concentrations derived from Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) data with results from a dynamic-thermodynamic sea ice model forced by daily means of air temperature and wind. The analyses focus on two regions with different ice characteristics and concentrations in the eastern and western Weddell Sea (Antarctica) for the austral winter period June to July 1992. Additional synoptic observations, surface and radiosonde measurements from a R.V. Polarstern cruise… CONTINUE READING
