|Abstract: ||The microwave backscatter statistics of the sea ice cover in the winter Beaufort Sea were characterized using C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data collected by ERS-1. Sea ice backscatter signatures were sampled from SAR image data collected during the winter of 1991/92 and winter of 1992/93. The spatial and temporal variabilities of the backscatter signatures of different ice types are discussed. The results show considerable seasonal stability of the backscatter signature of multi-year ice as well as first-year ice. Small amplitude regional variations of the multi-year ice backscatter can be observed. Consistent contrast between multiyear ice and first-year ice is maintained throughout the season.|
