Sea Ice Remote Sensing Using AMSR-E 89 GHz Channels

  title={Sea Ice Remote Sensing Using AMSR-E 89 GHz Channels},
  author={Gunnar Spreen and Lars Kaleschke and Georg Heygster},
Recent progress in sea ice concentration remote sensing by satellite microwave radiometers has been stimulated by two developments: First, the new sensor AMSR-E offers spatial resolutions of approximately 6x4 km at 89 GHz, nearly three times the resolution of the standard sensor SSM/I at 85 GHz (15x13 km). Second, a new algorithm enables to estimate sea ice concentration from the channels near 90GHz, despite the enhanced atmospheric influence in these channels. This allows to fully exploit… CONTINUE READING
