Impact of melt ponds on energy and momentum fluxes between atmosphere and sea ice (acronym: MELTEX)
Principal Investigator: Birnbaum, Gerit
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: The main goal of this project is to better understand how melt ponds evolve, and their influence on absorption/reflection of solar radiation at the sea ice surface. This information will help to predict summer sea ice melt and future Arctic climate. Data will be collected by using instruments mounted on the German research aircraft Polar5. The airbase of Polar5 will be Inuvik. The aircraft will...
