    • From Bright Windows to Dark Spots: Snow Cover Controls Melt Pond Optical Properties During Refreezing 

      Anhaus, P.ORCIDiD; Katlein, C.ORCIDiD; Nicolaus, M.ORCIDiD; Hoppmann, M.ORCIDiD; Haas, C.ORCIDiD (Geophysical Research Letters, 2021-12-02)
      Melt ponds have a strong impact on the Arctic surface energy balance and the ice‐associated ecosystem because they transmit more solar radiation compared to bare ice. In the existing literature, melt ponds are considered ...
    • Seasonal Evolution of Light Transmission Distributions Through Arctic Sea Ice 

      Katlein, ChristianORCIDiD; Arndt, StefanieORCIDiD; Belter, H. JakobORCIDiD; Castellani, GiuliaORCIDiD; Nicolaus, MarcelORCIDiD (Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans, 2019)
      Light transmission through sea ice is a critical process for energy partitioning at the polar atmosphere-ice-ocean boundary. Transmission of sunlight strongly impacts sea ice melting by absorption, as well as heat deposition, ...
