Improved determination of the sea ice edge with SSM/I data for small-scale analyses

A method to derive the sea ice edges from the 37and 85-GHz channels of the spaceborne Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) with higher resolution than operational ice concentration analyses is developed. A combined ice–atmosphere model to evaluate atmospheric influences showed that under clear sky conditions the error of the ice edge position is 3.1 km… CONTINUE READING
