Abstract

A series of high-resolution Synthetic Aperture Radar images (TerraSAR-X) has been acquired for three years (2011 to 2014), at different sets of autonomous observing platforms. The results include the analysis of SAR images for both open water fraction (OF) and floe size distribution (FSD) at the buoy locations. The 3 years of the data exhibit various spring-to-summer sea ice transitions, from highly fragmented events during 2012 August Cyclone to rigid ice condition during 2013 summer.
