Bayesian Sea Ice Detection With the ERS Scatterometer and Sea Ice Backscatter Model at C-Band

This paper describes the adaptation of a Bayesian sea ice detection algorithm for the scatterometer on-board the European Remote Sensing (ERS) satellites (ERS-1 and ERS-2). The algorithm is based on statistics of distances to ocean wind and sea ice geophysical model functions (GMFs) and its performance is validated against coincident active and passive… CONTINUE READING
