The Study of Weddell Sea Ice using passive microwave and buoy data

Robert Anthony Massom
The growth of the Weddell Sea ice cover in 1980 is examined, using Nimbus-7 satellite Scanning Multi-channel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) data in combination with data (positional, air temperature and atmospheric pressure) from 4 Nimbus-tracked drifting buoys. Ice concentrations are retrieved from the SMMR data by applying a cluster analysis algorithm developed by J. Comiso of NASA. Analyses of computed differential kinematic parameters (DKP)s of the buoy array offer insight into the complex mesoscale behaviour of...
