Identification of ice floes and their outlines in satellite images is important for understanding physical processes in the polar regions, for transportation in ice-covered seas and for the design of offshore structures intended to survive in the presence of ice. At present this is done manually, a long and tedious process which precludes full use of the great volume of relevant images now available. We describe an automatic and accurate method for identifying ice floes and their outlines. Floe… CONTINUE READING
