Waves in-ice observations made during the SIPEX II voyage of the Aurora Australis, 2012
Entry ID: SIPEX_II_Waves

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Antarctic sea-ice is highly influenced by the dynamic nature of the Southern Ocean. Ocean waves can propagate from tens to hundreds of kilometres into sea-ice, leaving behind a wake of broken ice sheets. As global climate change intensifies, storm intensity will increase in the Southern Ocean. Increased storm intensity will bring stronger winds and bigger waves, which has the potential for waves ...

Quality - Sensors 1,2 and 8 failed upon deployment and never transmitted
- All sensors, excluding 7, are presumed lost. Transmissions ceased during storms (averaging 48 knots). Note that sensor 6, the first to go, was deployed on the smallest floe of the 8.
- To establish when buoys are in water, see standard deviations of gyro and low frequency noise (an ... View entire text
