Abstract

As part of the winter Marginal Ice Zone Experiment (MIZEX-87), an aircraft with synthetic aperture radar (SAR) flew under a concurrent Geosat track across the pack ice east of Greenland in April 1987. Results from a comparison of cluster analysis of the SAR image with altimeter echo components are presented and interpreted. Both the SAR and altimeter are shown to discriminate distinct zones of ice characteristics within the pack ice.
