Remote sensing data from high resolution satellite images (SAR and optical) and ice charts will be analyzed along with ice draft data collected from 2 Ice Profiler™ and 2 ADCP moorings. ASL deployed the bottom moorings in 9 meters of water in December 2012 and recovered them April 2013. The remote sensing data was acquired via the Danish Meteorological Institute and the Norwegian Meteorological Institute.
