Ice thickness, surface ice roughness, and snow depth have been measured over the Mackenzie River Delta, the Beaufort Sea, and the Amundsen Gulf with a video-laser, ground-penetrating radar system, and helicopter-borne electromagnetic (EM) system. The observations are used to narrow the range of ice properties for offshore operating codes, to validate SAR imagery ice signatures, to support scientific stuies on the evolution of the pack ice (DFO), pack ice effects on shore properties and erosion (GSC), ice rubble formation (NRCAN), ice-ocean forecast model validation (DFO), and marine habitat studies (ArcticNet).
