An analysis of ice thickness distribution is a challenge, particularly in a seasonal sea ice zone with a strongly dynamic ice motion field, such as the Gulf of St. Lawrence off Canada. We present a novel automated method for ice concentration and thickness analysis combining modeling of sea ice thermodynamics and detection of ice motion on the basis of space-borne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data. Thermodynamic evolution of sea ice thickness in the Gulf of St. Lawrence was simulated for two… CONTINUE READING
