Abstract

The use of active and passive microwave imagery in combination is the optimum way to observe the morphology and dynamics of near shore ice. Active and passive microwave data from aircraft that are described in this paper are also compared to the ESMR (Electrically Scanning Microwave Radiometer) imagery of the Nimbus-5 satellite. The information thus obtained shows how the data to be received from the SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) and SMMR (Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer) and on Seasat A and Nimbus G have the potential of providing a vastly increased understanding of the near shore ice of the Beaufort Sea.
