Airborne X- and C-band SAR Images of Sea Ice in the Barents Sea
Entry ID: SIZEX-89-SAR

Abstract: SIZEX-89 was an official pre-launch ERS-1 program where the main objectives were to perform ERS-1 type sensors signature studies of different ice types in order to develop SAR algorithms for ice variables such as ice types, ice concentrations and ice kinematics. SIZEX-89 was a multidisciplinary, international winter experiment carried out in the Barents and the Greenland Seas during February and ... View entire text
