    • CryoSat-2 estimates of Arctic sea ice thickness and volume 

      Laxon, Seymour W.; Giles, Katharine A.; Ridout, Andy L.; Wingham, Duncan J.; Willatt, Rosemary; Cullen, Robert; Kwok, Ron; Schweiger, Axel; Zhang, Jinlun; Haas, Christian; Hendricks, Stefan; Krishfield, Richard A.; Kurtz, Nathan; Farrell, Sinead; Davidson, Malcolm (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-02-28)
      Satellite records show a decline in ice extent over more than three decades, with a record minimum in September 2012. Results from the Pan-Arctic Ice-Ocean Modelling and Assimilation system (PIOMAS) suggest that the decline ...
    • Evaluation of Arctic sea ice thickness simulated by Arctic Ocean Model Intercomparison Project models 

      Johnson, Mark; Proshutinsky, Andrey; Aksenov, Yevgeny; Nguyen, An T.; Lindsay, Ron; Haas, Christian; Zhang, Jinlun; Diansky, Nikolay; Kwok, Ron; Maslowski, Wieslaw; Hakkinen, Sirpa M. A.; Ashik, Igor M.; de Cuevas, Beverly (American Geophysical Union, 2012-03-15)
      Six Arctic Ocean Model Intercomparison Project model simulations are compared with estimates of sea ice thickness derived from pan-Arctic satellite freeboard measurements (2004–2008); airborne electromagnetic measurements ...
    • Snow depth of the Weddell and Bellingshausen sea ice covers from IceBridge surveys in 2010 and 2011 : an examination 

      Kwok, Ron; Maksym, Ted (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-07-08)
      We examine the snow radar data from the Weddell and Bellingshausen Seas acquired by eight IceBridge (OIB) flightlines in October of 2010 and 2011. In snow depth retrieval, the sidelobes from the stronger scattering snow-ice ...
    • Toward quantifying the increasing role oceanic heat in sea ice loss in the new Arctic 

      Carmack, Eddy C.; Polyakov, Igor V.; Padman, Laurie; Fer, Ilker; Hunke, Elizabeth C.; Hutchings, Jennifer K.; Jackson, Jennifer; Kelley, Daniel E.; Kwok, Ron; Layton, Chantelle; Melling, Humfrey; Perovich, Donald K.; Persson, Ola; Ruddick, Barry R.; Timmermans, Mary-Louise; Toole, John M.; Ross, Tetjana; Vavrus, Steve; Winsor, Peter (American Meteorological Society, 2015-12)
      The loss of Arctic sea ice has emerged as a leading signal of global warming. This, together with acknowledged impacts on other components of the Earth system, has led to the term “the new Arctic.” Global coupled climate ...
