Utqiaġvik (Barrow) Sea Ice
Utqiaġvik Sea Ice Radar produces radar backscatter maps to show movement, deformation, and stability of coastal ice. Location: downtown Utqiaġvik. Operates year round, with 11-km range. Images update every 10 minutes; 24-hour animations are produced daily at midnight.
Utqiaġvik Sea Ice Webcam shows current sea-ice conditions. Also helps maintain records of key dates in the seasonal evolution of the sea-ice cover, such as onset of fall ice formation, formation of a stable ice cover, onset of spring melt, appearance of melt ponds, beginning of ice break-up in early summer, and removal or advection of sea ice during the summer months. Location: downtown Utqiaġvik, looking NNW. Posts a new photo online every 5 minutes.
