NOAA@NSIDC is pleased to announce the release of the Sea Ice Mass Balance in the Antarctic (SIMBA) data set. This data set provides different measurements of Antarctic sea ice collected as part of the SIMBA program. The observation program was carried out in the fall of 2007 and the spring of 2009 during a drift program of the Nathaniel B. Palmer icebreaker along with a buoy network established on the Antarctic sea ice. Measurements of ice thickness, temperature profiles, large-scale deformation, and other sea ice characteristics were made. To learn more and to access these data see the Sea Ice Mass Balance in the Antarctic (SIMBA) data set page.
