Deliverables

  • Provision of new observational products for initialization (SMOS+CRYOSAT2 thickness and along track sea ice concentration)

    In order to take advantage of the higher temporal resolution of swath based sea ice products with accurate timestamps, Level 2 data will be provided to the model partners for assimilation and validation purposes. The actual production of the L2 data will be done in WPs 2-7. First test version at KO+12, and production version at KO+24.

  • Novel sea ice classification algorithms for SAR images

    Various existing algorithms for SAR based sea ice classification are further developed for dual-polarized Sentinel-1 and Radarsat-2 images. The methods include nonlinear clustering algorithms, multiple-polarization SAR segmentation algorithms, as well as segmentation and classification algorithms based on segment-wise features.

  • Dataset of snow (and related ice) parameters over sea ice along IMB buoy trajectories.

    Time series of snow/ice parameters along buoy drift trajectories as ASCII files in ESA CCI RRDP format. Parameters include as many as possible of snow thickness, snow density, ice thickness, surface temperature, ice/snow interface temperature, temperatures at standard levels in snow and ice. First version at KO+9, 2nd version at KO+21, and final at KO+30.

  • Dataset of snow (and related ice-) parameters from OIB and CryoVex campaigns

    Time series of snow/ice parameters along ice drift trajectories as ASCII files in ESA CCI RRDP format. Parameters include as many as possible of snow thickness, snow density, ice thickness, surface temperature, ice/snow interface temperature, temperatures at standard levels in snow and ice. First version at KO+9, and final at KO+21.

  • Pre-processing methods for dual-polarized Sentinel-1 IW/EM and RADARSAT-2 ScanSAR images

    Description of methods and software for pre-processing of SAR, e.g. georectifcation, calibration, incidence angle scaling, filtering.

  • Gridded product of SMOS and SMAP TB (daily average; resolution 12-15 km) and uncertainties

    The Microwave Imagine Radiometer with Aperture Synthesis (MIRAS) aboard ESA's SMOS satellite measures the Earth's surface brightness temperature (TB) at L-Band (frequency of 1.4 GHz). NASA's SMAP spacecraft carries a 1.2 GHz radar and a 1.4 GHz radiometer that share a single feedhorn and a mesh reflector. The synthetic aperture technique of SMOS allows to measure TB at a range of incidence angles while SMAP uses a conical scan geometry and a constant incidence angle at 40°. In order to generate a homogeneous SMOS/SMAP data product the SMOS TB will be interpolated to the SMAP incidence angle of 40°. SMOS and SMAP polarized TBs and their estimated uncertainties will be projected into a common grid, e.g. polar stereographic or EASE. Data products will be generated using standard NetCDF format.

  • Gridded product of SMAP sigma-0 (daily average; resolution 1-3 km) and uncertainties

    NASA's SMAP 1.2 GHz radar measures the normalized backscatter coefficient sigma-0 at a high resolution (1-3 km) over the Arctic Ocean. A product of sigma-0 values and their uncertainties will be defined as a grid compatible to the TB grid, i.e. with the same projection as the SMOS/SMAP TB. Data products will be generated using standard NetCDF format.

  • Adjusted sea ice classification methodology to satellite altimeter data based on existing airborne altimeter methodology

    Earlier the possibility of sea ice classification using Airborne Synthetic Aperture and Interferometric Radar Altimeter System (ASIRAS) was demonstrated. Significant differences between waveform shape parameters allowed to classify first-year-ice and multiyear ice as well as leads by applying a Bayesian based method. Further analyses are conducted to test how these results can be adapted to satellite borne altimeter systems.

  • Arctic sea ice type product from satellite altimetry

    This is a data product of sea ice type in digital format (netcdf following CF convention) based on radar altimeter data. The product will be made freely available for the scientific community.

  • Retrieval methodology to retrieve applied WMO ice classes from RA data

    A demonstration of retrieving sea ice type from radar altimeter data and the documentation of the methodology used.

  • Gridded product of sea ice thickness from SMOS and SMAP and uncertainties

    The operational SMOS algorithm of UHAM will be adjusted for the use with SMOS and SMAP TBs at a constant incidence angle. The ice thickness and its uncertainty will be estimated from the TBs and delivered on the common grid. Data products will be generated using standard NetCDF format.

  • Project web site
