Catlin Arctic Survey 2009

A team of 3 polar explorers were able to perform an extreme field expedition, taking physical measurements of ice thickness and snow depth using a manual ice drill and ice gauge over a 470km transit from 81.5N130W, to 85.33N125W, during a 72 day expedition in from the 1st of March to the 11th of July 2009. The team selected pans each evening representative of the type of ice they had travelled on during the day, and measured it's thickness and snow covering by taking multiple physical measurements, avoiding boundary conditions near ridges and leads. This methodology provides modal ice thickness results which in this case was almost exclusively First Year Ice.
