Polar Research at UW Oceanography
Arctic oceanography and sea ice research at the University of Washington's School of Oceanography.
Current work: the Ross Sea Polynyas
Ongoing work to apply the SSM/I-based estimations of coastal polynya ice production
to the Ross Sea polynyas is being done in collaboration with Ron
Kwok and Ben Holt
at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute
of Technology, Pasadena.
This work is in progress and subject to revision.
