The thermodynamic evolution of the ice cover is strongly influenced
by the physical properties of the ice. These physical properties include
ice temperature, salinity, density, brine volume and permeability.
Ice cores were routinely taken to measure these properties. (Photo

Welcome fellow adventurers!
The Student Journal has all the worksheets that you will need for
each day of the Arctic Alive expedition. Each worksheet corresponds
to a lesson that your teacher will give to you that day. You will
need to print out the worksheet so you can fill it out. All worksheets
are available for downloading in either a PDF or MS Word format.
Once you have all the worksheets completed, you will have a journal
that will show what you have learned during this expedition! Have
fun and see you out on the sea ice!
