Group: Summary

   This data set contains observations of albedo, depth, and physical 
   characteristics of melt ponds on sea ice, taken during the summer of 1994. The 
   melt ponds studied were located just south of Cornwallis Island in the Barrow 
   Strait, Nunavat, Canada. The reflectance spectra were acquired with a portable 
   spectrometer. Cloud conditions and ice type were recorded as well.
