Paper Abstract

An apparatus has been developed to measure the optical scattering of laser light from the water-ice interface of sea ice. To avoid changes that occur in the optical characteristics of inhomogeneous natural sea ice when removed from its environment, this apparatus operates in situ. Testing with this apparatus was conducted on shore-fast ice at Resolute Bay in Canada. We investigated the capabilities of this apparatus to measure in situ scattering profiles from the underside of the ice (the water-ice interface) as a function of detector angle. Testing was conducted on ice containing biological material in the bottom layer and on ice cleared of 0.5 cm of this bottom layer. Results were compared to characterize the optical effects of the biological material layer.
