Snow and sea ice thickness using EM Induction System, 2008

A helicopter-based electro-magnetic (EM) induction system was mounted directly onto the nose of the BO105 Coast Guard helicopter. Numerous transects were flown within the CFL study region, focusing on the landfast ice within Franklin Bay, and the mobile sea ice within the Amundsen Gulf. In addition, several transects were flown around Banks Island on an opportunistic basis. The helicopter was flown at an altitude of approximately 15 meters over the ice surface for the first part of the sampling period (2-5 May 2008), then at approximately 5 meters altitude for the remainder of the sampling period.
