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.
