Enhanced Arctic Sea Ice Drift Estimation Merging Radiometer and Scatterometer Data

  title={Enhanced Arctic Sea Ice Drift Estimation Merging Radiometer and Scatterometer Data},
  author={Fanny Girard-Ardhuin and Robert Ezraty},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing},
Satellites enable daily and global coverage of the polar oceans and provide a unique monitoring capability of sea ice dynamics. Sea ice drift maps can be estimated in Arctic from several satellite sensors, particularly from scatterometers and radiometers. This study presents the benefits of combining single drift fields at the same resolution into a “merged” field, built at three- and six-day lags during winters with a 62.5-km resolution. It is shown that combining these drift fields not only… CONTINUE READING
