Title: The Character of the Beaufort Sea Ice Cover From Active and Passive Microwave Observations
Authors: Kwok, R.
Issue Date: Feb-1996
Citation: San Diego, California
Abstract: By definition, ice which survives the summer is classified as multiyear ice. Thus, multiyear ice concentration during the winter should be nearly equivalent to the ice concentration during the previous summer's minima. This condition provides a reasonable criterion for evaluation of ice concentration and ice type retrieval algorithms from remote sensing datasets. From SSM/I data, the NASA Team algorithm estimates the multiyear, first-year and total ice concentrations throughout the sea ice season using combinations of the polarization and spectral gradient ratios.
