Sea Ice Thickness Field Measurements Available

In cooperation with the International Arctic Research Center (IARC) at the University of Alaska, NOAA@NSIDC is providing an access point and standard metadata for the Sea Ice Experiment: Dynamic Nature of the Arctic (SEDNA) project. The SEDNA data collection is unique in that several ice thickness data sets were inter-calibrated and coordinated with monitoring of the ice pack strain-rate (horizontal deformation) and measurements of internal ice stress. This experiment was designed to improve our understanding of the relationship between sea ice thickness and dynamics. For more information and to access the data, see the SEDNA: Sea ice Experiment – Dynamic Nature of the Arctic summary page.
