Newman in the field with Naval Research Laboratory

ESSIC Research Associate Thomas Newman was recently in the field with the Naval Research Laboratory as part of their DISTANCE/Sea ice physics projects.

Newman spent 18 days in Barrow, AK and worked on in situ site selection and the analysis of the airborne snow radar data. He also participated in the ground campaign which included taking snow pit measurements to see the structure of the snow pack, snow magnaprobe measurements to measure snow depth, and EM31 ground conductivity measurements to derive sea ice thickness.
