To validate the ice flags provided in the RADS data set and to study the effect of ice cover on the quality of altimeter data, we calculated ice concentration for each altimeter measurement.
Especially pressure build up, mass throughput and the dry ice concentration itself have a high impact on the process.

Under "normal" conditions, Adelie penguins were most successful at finding food at relatively low sea ice concentrations and should be able to cope with future reduction in summer sea ice concentration.
Orbital neutron measurements also indicate elevated levels of nearasurface hydrogen in the polar regions; in the form of water, this hydrogen would represent an average ice concentration of about 1.
