Review of Field techniques for sea ice research, by Hajo Eicken, Rolf Gradinger, Maya Salganek, Kunio Shirasawa, Don Perovich & Matti Leppäranta
With the rapid decrease of the summer sea-ice cover in the Arctic, sea ice and the work of sea-ice researchers have been regularly in the spotlight of media and public attention in recent years. This book is a timely attempt to create a set of guidelines for the most common techniques for field measurements of sea-ice properties, filling a gap in the recently published sea-ice literature. Led by Hajo Eicken, the editors bring together 29 contributors, a group that mirrors in its composition the collaborative, international and interdisciplinary nature of sea-ice research and forms the base for the wide range of topics.
