Shallow Water Ice Profiler (SWIP) instruments are upward looking single beam echosounders mounted on the ocean floor specialized to measure ice draft. They can estimate ice forces, determine the thickness of ice, and the detail of the underside of sea-ice.
Ice Profilers will help understand the dynamics and thermodynamics of the sea ice regime in Arctic environments.
