[1] We provide an assessment of the ICESat altimeter for studying the Arctic Ocean and examine the magnitude of the large- and small-scale expressions of geophysical processes embedded in the elevation profiles. This analysis includes data from six surveys. At the large scale the response of the ice-covered ocean to atmospheric loading is near ideal (i.e., approximately - 1 cm/hPa). After removal of the inverted barometer effects and best available geoid the elevation signal is still dominated… CONTINUE READING
