Estimates of Sea Ice Floe Velocities Characterizing Whaling Seasons Using Satellite Imagery of the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas, Spring 2000 and 2001
Entry ID: ARCSS149

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set formed the basis for estimating sea ice floe velocities covering two spring whaling seasons with markedly different rates of success from March to June in 2000 and 2001 in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas near Barrow, Alaska. Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images from the RADARSAT and the European Remote Sensing Two (ERS - 2) satellites and broadband visible (VIS) and infrared ... View entire text
