Abstract: In this paper, we provide a short review of sea ice investigations starting from Seasat. We focus particularly on the detailed and quantitative measurements of the sea ice motion field, which were some of the earliest results from Seasat and have sugsequently been shown to be of critical value to the derivation of several key climatically important variables. Other key investigations discussed include examination of the seasonal melt cycle, ice extent and concentration, and estimates of thickness from the proxy measurements of ice type and age and more directly from freeboard. We end with a brief discussion on how thse measurements might be improved in the future.
