First automatic ice thickness measurements from an ice island thanks to Anna Crawford and Laurent Mingo

WIRL member Anna Crawford installed an ice penetrating radar and small meteorological station on PII-A-1-f, a 14 km2 ice island which was grounded 35 km southeast of Qikiqtarjuaq, NU. The field work was completed on 20 October 2015 and daily ice thickness, surface melt and temperature conditions are transmitted daily for remote data collection and processed by Laurent Mingo. This will provide the greatest temporal resolution mass balance data-set for an ice island globally.
