MEaSUREs: Small-Scale Kinematics of Arctic Ocean Sea Ice
Entry ID: JPL-RGPS-0001

Abstract: This data set of the Arctic Ocean sea ice cover is derived from radar imagery. The data products were produced by the RADARSAT Geophysical Processing System (RGPS), a project supported by the NASA MEaSUREs program. The 4 types of products are: ice motion, ice deformation, ice age and thickness, and radar backscatter. The primary data source for the analysis is the Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) on ...
