About this book

This book is a collection of the most recent and significant research on algorithms for the analysis of polar sea-ice SAR data. All algorithms are implemented and tested.


Recent advances in the analysis of SAR data of the polar oceans; identifying ice floes and computing ice floe distributions in SAR images; the role of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) in surface energy flux measurements over sea ice; extraction of intermediate scale sea ice deformation parameters from SAR ice motion products; fusion of satellite SAR with passive microwave data for sea ice remote sensing; wavelet analysis of SAR images in the marginal ice zone; mapping the progression of melt onset and freeze-up on Arctic Sea ice using synthetic aperture radar and scatterometry; satellite microwave radar observations of Antarctic Sea ice; Alaska SAR facility - the US Science Center for Sea Ice SAR data; Polar SAR data for operational sea ice mapping; the RADARSAT geophysical processor system; towards operational monitoring of Arctic sea ice by synthetic aperture radar.
