Permafrost / Shelf Temperature Profiles
« on: February 26, 2017, 08:00:22 PM »
As we analyze ourselves to certain doom it becomes imperative that we measure shelf temperatures in the form of a profile map. The only one I could find online is here:

The figure is Figure 5:
ftp://ftp.nodc.noaa.gov/nodc/archive/arc0001/9800040/1.1/data/0-data/atlas/html/intro/graphics/ks_fig5.htm

This is old data (1994) but is the form I like to see.

A new research article is here:

Can anyone refer me to temperature profiles of the different shelfs? Are we monitoring them? Seems that is more critical now that the ice is just about gone.
