Sea Ice Monitoring by Remote Sensing

  title={Sea Ice Monitoring by Remote Sensing},
  author={Stein Sandven and Ola M. Johannessen and Kyle Kloster},
Sea ice is a part of the cryosphere that interacts continuously with the underlying oceans and the overlaying atmosphere. The growth and decay of sea ice occur on a seasonal cycle at the surface of the ocean at high latitudes. As much as 30 million km2 of the Earth’s surface can be covered by sea ice. In the Northern Hemisphere, sea ice extent fluctuates each year from a minimum in September, when most of the ice is confined to the central Arctic Ocean, Greenland Sea and Canadian Archipelago… CONTINUE READING
