Collaborative Research: Using Opportunistic Radon Measurements to Estimate the Gas Transfer Velocity in Partial Sea Ice Cover

Lead PI: Dr. William Massie Smethie

Unit Affiliation: Geochemistry, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)

November 2012 - October 2014
Arctic Ocean
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The study will make an exploratory map of the scaling relationship between the gas transfer velocity (k) and the forcing conditions in the season sea ice zone using the radon deficit method.
