Helicopter Data from Sea Ice Field Surveys
(ANON FTP or by request)

Data and software are included for the EM Ice Probes: IcePic and IceProbe, the Video-Laser-GPS system, and the ground-penetrating radar (GPR) ice and snow thickness system. Sea ice observations, plots and digital pictures of the sea ice surveys are available for download or as a data CD (by request). Only a small fraction of the video frames collected are shown as mosaics and show the different ice conditions seen along the helicopter flight paths. Notes and mosaic lists are also provided (documentation requires MSWord). The ice thickness data files (Datfiles) are included; they can be used to plot and overlay on SAR images or to make ice thickness plots yourself with the Datfile viewer (requires MatlabR12 or 5.3).
