Sea Ice Thickness and Subice Morphology Data of First Chinese Arctic Expedition in 1999
Datacenter: Polar Research Institute of China
Collection: ADC, GCW
Iso topic category: Oceans
During the first Chinese Arctic Scientific Expedition between July and September in 1999, a ground radio-echo sounding survey was carried out, using a new type of ice penetrating radar system with antenna center frequencies of between 100 and 200 MHz, for detecting the sea ice thickness in Arctic Ocean. In addition, the radar sounding yielded a subtle morphology on the bottom of sea ice in summer in Arctic Ocean.
