Abstract:

A GROWING NEED EXISTS BY BOTH THE MILITARY AND INDUSTRY FOR A RAPID METHOD OF REMOTELY MEASURING THE THICKNESS OF THE ARCTIC SEA ICE COVER. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN ELECTROMAGNETIC INDUCTION SENSOR TO REMOTELY MEASURE SEA ICE THICKNESS FROM AN AIRCRAFT. THEORY SUGGESTS THIS TECHNIQUE HAS GOOD POTENTIAL. IN ORDER TO VERIFY THE THEORY , A COMPUTER ANALYSIS AND A BRIEF ARCTIC FIELD TEST WILL BE PERFORMED ON AN EXISTING, LOW-COST, GROUND-BASED ELECTRO- MAGNETIC INDUCTION SENSOR, NORMALLY USED FOR TERRESTRIAL S URVEYS. THE FIELD TEST RESULTS WILL BE ANALYZED AND EXTRAPOLATED TO PROVIDE A REALISTIC ESTIMATE OF THE FEASIBILITY AND EXPECTED PERFORMANCE OF AIRBORNE SYSTEMS. FLOW HAS EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN ARCTIC RESEARCH, COMPUTER MODELING, AND THE COMMERCIALIZATION OF HIGH TECHNOLOGY PRODUCTS. THIS, COMBINED WITH THE EXPERTISE OF PROJECT CONSULTANTS, PROFESSOR ALEX BECKER, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA,BERKELEY, WILL HELP ENSURE THE SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION AND TECHNICAL ACCURACY OF THE PROPOSED WORK.
