NSIDC request for new science keyword

by windnage » Thu Apr 21, 2022 1:23 pm America/New_York

Hello,

NSIDC would like to request the addition of a new science keyword to the science keywords list. We would like to request the addition of “ice draft” under the following hierarchy:

EARTH SCIENCE >> CRYOSPHERE >> SEA ICE >> ICE DRAFT [Category >> Topic >> Term >> Variable_Level_1]
Short name: Ice Draft
Long name: Ice Draft

This keyword is not currently in the science keyword list and is a common topic used in sea ice research.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Best,
Ann

@windnage
Thank you for the keyword request. Can you please provide a definition and reference for the keyword?

Yes, not a problem.

Definition: Ice draft is a measurement of the ice thickness below the waterline and often serves as a close proxy for total ice thickness. (from https://www.britannica.com/topic/ice-draft).

You can also see the definition with a figure on NSIDC's web site at: https://nsidc.org/cryosphere/glossary/term/draft

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Best,
Ann

This is perfect. Makes sense to add it to both places.
Thank you!
