Title Sea ice studies in the Weddell Sea aboard USCGC Polar Sea
Date 1980
Description Our purpose was to investigate several of the characteristics of Weddell Sea pack ice that may affect the relative roles of dynamics and thermodynamics of pack ice development in this region. The total pack ice production and the movement of pack ice from its source area in the Weddell Sea is particularly important in modifying ocean-atmosphere exchange processes. These modifications affect both climate and water mass development in and beyond the Weddell Sea embayment. The pack ice area affected by Weddell Sea processes is 8-10 million square kilometers (Ackley 1979a), about one-third of the total around Antarctica at maximum extent.
