Airborne laser surveys of data sparse areas of the Arctic Ocean

Airborne laser freeboard surveys were performed north of Greenland for the first time, in a data sparse area of the Arctic Ocean, which should be the most sensitive region to changing ice thickness. The freeboard measurements can be correlated with thickness measurements from electromagnetic induction and submarine draft profiles to give new insight into the freeboard/draft relation and the extent of pressure ridging in this most deformed area (zone of convergence).
