Abstract

University of Tasmania researchers have devised a "game-changing" strategy to measure the thickness of sea ice in Antarctica. The plan, as outlined by polar oceanographer Dr Guy Williams at the first of two Research Week showcases presented by the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS), will involve the use of both underwater robots and unmanned aerial platforms. Sea ice is the frozen ocean around a land mass such as Antarctica or Greenland. "Think of a pavlova sea ice is the doily around the edge," Dr Williams explained.
