Interesting bit just published on energy transmittance through melt ponds:


"Acceleration of sea-ice melting due to transmission of solar radiation through ponded ice area in the Arctic Ocean: results of in situ observations from icebreakers in 2006 and 2007" Itoh et al 2011 (open-access copy here).

Gonna be a hot one.
