Sample text

During this period we would expect to find a significant difference in solar noon versus solar midnight observations, as small amounts of water in liquid phase would contribute to grain growth and the elevated temperatures would significantly increase the brine volume of the ice surface and snow basal layer. The overall magnitude of 0'0 will be dependent on the ice surface microscale roughness and its surface brine volume. Melt Onset. In multiyear sea ice, melt onset is denoted by a rapid decrease in 0'0.

The dielectric constant profile is less variable than in first -year sea ice forms because of the absence of brine. Early melt is a transition period starting with the beginning of snow pack metamorphism and ending when moisture is continuously present in the snow. Metamorphic processes include kinetic energy (wind-induced metamorphosis) and radiant energy. Radiant energy provides for development of ice lenses and ice layers within the snow pack (Miller 1981). Kinetic processes cause metamorphosis from a faceted hexagonal snow flake with intercrystal pore spaces consisting primarily of air, to a more rounded grain state (Colbeck 1982).

This is associated with increasing water in liquid phase within the snowpack (Barber et al. 1994). 1. ----t---+--+----t---t---+----t----l 100 11 0 120 130 140 1 SO 160 170 180 Day of Year - - Q*92 ············Q*93 - -Q*94 ---Q*95 pheres. The rising limb corresponds in time with a decline in surface albedo, an increase in transmitted solar radiation and an increased frequency of non-northerly winds, and is coincident in time when the daily average near-surface air temperature rises above the temperature at the snow-ice interface.
