The study was undertaken to determine the variation in multiyear ice salinity profiles with changes in ice surface topography. The results also led to an examination of the variation of the mean salinity of both first-year and multiyear ice with changes in ice thickness. Salinity observations from sea ice of varying thicknesses and ages collected at various arctic subarctic locations revealed a strong correlation between the average salinity of the ice thickness.
