Ross Sea Ice Motion , Area Flux , and Deformation

  title={Ross Sea Ice Motion , Area Flux , and Deformation},
  author={Ronald Kwok},
The sea ice motion, area export, and deformation of the Ross Sea ice cover are examined with satellite passive microwave and RADARSAT observations. The record of high-resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data, from 1998 and 2000, allows the estimation of the variability of ice deformation at the small scale ( 10 km) and to assess the quality of the longer record of passive microwave ice motion. Daily and subdaily deformation fields and RADARSAT imagery highlight the variability of motion… CONTINUE READING
