dc.description.abstractThe extent to which an ocean area is covered by ice is significant for the energy budget of the area, because (1) the existence of ice changes the albedo of the area, and therefore the absorbed solar energy, (2) its low thermal conductivity alters the energy expended by the ocean in the form of long wave radiation, sensible and latent heat, and finally, (3) freezing and melting frequently do not occur at the same place, so that the movement of ice may export or import energy into a given area. The pack ice belt surrounding Antarctica is by far the largest sea ice area in the world. Although there is a paucity of data, it seems worthwhile to analyze the available information in order to obtain at least a tentative picture and to draw attention to the most critical observations which are required for a better understanding of the pack ice belt.en_US
