Abstract : A series of sensor-oriented characterization measurements in support of the experiment's remote sensing efforts from the Polarbjorn ice strengthened ship during the 1983 Marginal Ice Zone Experiment were conducted. Measurements describe the physical properties of the ice in this region and are reported herein. Descriptions include: ice and snow thickness; ice salinity profiles; air, ice and snow temperatures; the construction of the snow pack; and general comments about floe topography.
