Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: Main objectives are to improve knowledge of how ocean surface and near surface properties vary and evolve as a function of ice characteristics in and near the marginal ice zone and to quantify the performance of satellite-driven geophysical products and climate models in these areas.
