Abstract : The instrument package the spatial distribution of ice surface temperature in a variety of atmospheric conditions. Data were obtained with a Heimann KT-19 infrared thermometer with a 2 degree field of view. This information can be used to infer the ice thickness distribution for thin ice and to validate estimates of ice surface temperature from satellite data. To measure the broad-band radiative properties of these crystals on the surface infrared radiation balance and satellite-derived surface temperatures. To observe the effects of heat and ice crystal plumes from leads on surface temperature downwind of the lead
