Floe-scale maps of sea ice draft from AUV multibeam on SIPEX-II
Entry ID: SIPEX_II_Sea_Ice_Draft_Maps

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: These data were collected on the SIPEX II voyage of the Aurora Australis in 2012.

These data are floe-scale maps of Antarctic sea ice draft (m). These were collected using a multibeam instrument attached to an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). This AUV was the WHOI 'SeaBED-class' vehicle named 'Jaguar'. Details on the deployment and processing of this data can be found in Williams, Maksym ... View entire text
