Abstract [en]

BEPERS-88 was an extensive field campaign on the use of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) in sea ice remote sensing in the Baltic Sea. This experiment was performed in order to study the possibilities of using the ERS-1 satellite SAR (and radar altimeter) in connection with the brackish ice in the Baltic Sea. The Canada Centre for Remote Sensing CV-580 C/X-band SAR was flown and an extensive validation programme was carried out. The data have been used for SAR image analysis, backscatter investigations, geophysical validation of SAR over sea ice, and evaluation of the potentials of SAR in operational ice information services. The results indicate that SAR can be used to discriminate between ice and open water, classify ice types into three categories, quantify ice ridging intensity, and determine the ice drift. As an operational tool SAR is expected to be an excellent complement to NOAA imagery and ground truth.
