Antarctic sea ice elevation from satellite radar altimetry

  title={Antarctic sea ice elevation from satellite radar altimetry},
  author={Katharine A. Giles and Seymour W. Laxon and Anthony P. Worby},
[1] In situ measurements of sea ice thickness from ship and upward-looking sonar are used to assess the potential for satellite radar altimetry to provide information on Antarctic sea ice thickness. A climatology of satellite ice elevation estimates is compared to an Antarctic sea ice thickness climatology made from the Antarctic Sea Ice Processes and Climate (ASPeCt) data set. In addition monthly, regional, satellite ice elevation estimates are compared to ULS ice draft data. The results show… CONTINUE READING
