Tool for Polar Ice Characteristics Study
Entry ID: BYU_TOPICS


Summary
Abstract: The Tool for Polar Ice Characteristics Study provides a data analysis tool for investigating climate changes fingerprints in polar ice variability. Using 8 years of continuous scatterometer data from ERS-1/2, it computes
statistical time series of the normalized cross-section backscatter over polar regions, and produces graphical outputs which helps monitoring and interpreting the evolution of polar ice statistical characteristics.
