Anomaly investigation in SCICEX 98 and 99

SCICEX 98 was a summer cruise from June to August. The following Arctic winter, SCICEX 99 went out between March and April. Red profiles are from the Summer SCICEX 98 cruise, and Blue profiles are from the Winter SCICEX 99 cruise. The title of each plot is the distance between the winter and summer profiles.

RED = SUMMER

BLUE = WINTER

The map below shows the subsection of the SCICEX 98 and 99 track where raw profiles were investigated. On the right, all profiles are superimposed. In the table below, pairs of profiles were choosen for their proximity to each other. The distance between the profile pairs increases as you move down the table.

The circle's center is at: 81.60N 199.63E
The radius is: 206.92 km
