Abstract

As part of the winter Marginal Ice Zone Experiment (MIZEX-87) an aircraft with Synthetic Aperature Radar (SAR) flew under a concurrent GEOSAT track across the pack ice east of Greenland in April, 1987. Both the SAR and altimeter are shown to discriminate distinct zones of ice characteristics within the pack ice. This study represents a collaborative effort between ERS-1 and GEOSAT principal investigators and is expected to lead to improved ice monitoring algorithms for both satellites. -from Authors
