Objective(s): To continue to study the spatial and seasonal variability of the elastic wave (sound speed) propagation in sea ice;

Project Description: This study will assist in understanding the changes that take place in the structure of sea ice during different seasons. These data will help in determining the strength characteristics of sea ice.
