Helicopter-borne laser profiling of sea ice surface roughnessLaser profiler measurements were performed during the CCGS Henry Larsen cruise: Canadian Arctic Through flow (CATs) 2009 cruise to Nares Strait. Airborne surveys were conducted on August 16, 18 and 19, 2009.A laser was mounted on a helicopter pointing vertically downwards to measure the altitude above the ice surface which nominally was 30 m. Depending on flight speed, the spatial sampling interval ranged between 0.02 and 0.15 m. Positioning of the profiles was performed by means of a Global Positioning System (GPS).After eye inspection of the data and removal of outliers, the low frequency helicopter ...
