Title Sea ice – an introduction to its physics, chemistry, biology and geology Type Book Whole
Year 2003 Publication (up) Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 402 pp
Keywords Sea Ice
Abstract Sea ice, which covers up to 7% of the planet's surface, is a major component of the world's oceans, partly driving ocean circulation and global climate patterns. It provides a habitat for a rich diversity of marine organisms, and is a valuable source of information in studies of global climate change and the evolution of present day life forms. Increasingly, sea ice is being used as a proxy for extraterrestrial ice covered systems.

Sea Ice provides a comprehensive review of our current available knowledge of polar pack ice, the study of which is severely constrained by the logistic difficulties of working in such harsh and remote regions of the earth. The book's editors, Drs Thomas and Dieckmann have drawn together an impressive group of international contributing authors, providing a well-edited and integrated volume, which will stand for many years as the standard work on the subject. Contents of the book include details of the growth, microstructure and properties of sea ice, large-scale variations in thickness and characteristics, its primary production, micro-and macrobiology, sea ice as a habitat for birds and mammals, sea ice biogeochemistry, particulate flux, and the distribution and significance of palaeo sea ice.

Title Investigations into the physical and chemical properties of Baltic Sea ice Type Book Whole
Year 2004 Publication (up) Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords sea ice; snow-ice; superimposed ice; meteoric ice; chemistry; nutrients; trace elements; Baltic Sea
Abstract Sea ice is a key component of polar and sub-polar seas, including the Baltic Sea. It not only affects climate, from global to local scales, but also strongly modifies the conditions in the marine environment through freezing and eventual melt in several ways. The role of snow in sea ice growth is presumed to be high in the Baltic Sea, although very little quantitative information is available on the contribution of precipitation to ice growth in the Baltic Sea. Even less is known about the chemistry of sea ice and its role as a moderator of (bio)geochemical cycling and budgets of elements in the Baltic Sea. The aim of this Thesis is to shed new light on these matters.The importance of snow and precipitation on the growth of Baltic Sea ice is vital. For the first time, the stable oxygen isotopic composition of ice, snow and water were used to quantify the amount of snow and precipitation incorporated into the sea ice cover. Results show that meteoric ice (precipitation transformed to ice) constitute up to 35% of the total sea ice mass, much higher than reported elsewhere. Furthermore, the formation of superimposed ice (refrozen snow melt or rain) seem to be important as well, presumably due to the mild ice climate conditions in the region.The atmospheric load is also important in the chemical budgets of several elements, in particular nitrogen and lead, in the sea ice cover. The sea ice cover acts as a buffer for accumulated substances until its inevitable melt. However, the accumulated nutrients are transported through the ice at times when the ice becomes permeable. This, in turn, makes the accumulated nutrients available in the lower ice layers as well as in under-ice water, potentially affecting algal growth. The chemical budgets and the seasonal cycling of elements with selective rejection/retention during freezing of seawater are potentially affected, especially in the shallow regions of the Bothnian Bay.

Title Horizontal variations in biogeochemical characteristics of landfast sea ice in the Gulf of Finland (the Baltic Sea) Type Book Chapter
Year 2004 Publication (up) Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 5-11
Keywords Fast Ice; Biogeochemical Properties; Salinity; Oxygen Isotope; Chlorophyll; Nutrients; Doc; Horizontal Patchiness; Spatial Variability; Patchiness; Baltic Sea; Oxygen Isotopes
Abstract In order to study the mesoscale variation in ice properties, horizontal variation of first-year landfast sea ice properties was investigated in the Gulf of Finland, the Baltic Sea. Several scales of variation were considered; samples at spacing of 0.2-, 2- and 20-m were sampled at several locations at different stages of the ice season. Spacing between these locations varied from hundreds of meters to kilometers. The variables measured included salinity, stable oxygen isotopes (δ¹8O), chlorophyll-a, nutrients, and dissolved organic carbon (DOC). Analyses of the data from the arrays did not show evidence of significant patchiness at scales <20-m. On scales of hundreds of meters to kilometers there was clear patchiness in several parameters (salinity, chl-a, snow depth and ice thickness). The results imply that the sampling effort in Baltic Sea ice studies should be concentrated at scales of hundreds of meters to kilometers.
