Summary
Abstract: This map shows the distribution of the iceberg data extracted from ERS SAR images.

Icebergs are identified in Synthetic Aperture Radar [SAR] images by image analysis using the texture and intensity of the microwave backscatter observations. The images are segmented using an edge detecting algorithm, and segments identified as iceberg or background, which may be sea ice, open water, or a mixture ... View entire text
