Abstract

The two campaigns were carried out within the framework of the Russian-German research cooperation 'Laptev Sea System'. Measurements were made in the southeastern Laptev Sea at the end of April 2008 (campaign Transdrift (TD) XIII) and 2012 (campaign TD XX). Data obtained over pack ice zones north of the landfast ice edge were used to estimate sea ice production in flaw polynyas (Rabenstein et al. 2013, Krumpen et al. 2011) and for validation of ESA's SMOS (Soil Moisture Ocean Salinity) satellite derived ice thickness products. Flaw polynyas are open water sites between pack ice and fast ice of high net ice production sustained by winds.
