Abstruct-Radar backscatter signatures of old sea ice in the central Arctic have been measured and analyzed. A ship-mounted scatterometer was used to acquire backscattering coefficients at 5.4 GHz in the four linear polarization states and at incidence angles between 20" and 60". Detailed in situ characterizations of the snow and ice were also made to enable comparison with theoretical backscatter models. Freeze-up conditions were prevalent during the experiment period with air temperatures a… CONTINUE READING
