The objective of this study is to provide information on the thickness distribution, movement, and characteristics of different types of sea ice within the Beaufort Sea Region. The focus will be on hummocked multi-year sea ice referred to as Extreme Ice Features (EIFs). These EIFs are poorly understood, and would be the most hazardous to any engineered structure in the southern Beaufort Sea (such ...

The primary objective of the research is to characterize the physical processes of the ice/ocean/atmosphere interface and to develop the capability to measure the pertinent variables using remote sensing data. The operational monitoring which can be provided by satellite remote sensing, is a necessary prerequisite to understanding the impacts of CO2 induced warming of the ice covered regi...
