About this book


This book reviews recent advances in the use of SAR imagery for operational applications and for supporting science investigations of the polar oceans. The important parameters which can be extracted from spaceborne SAR imagery are discussed. Algorithms used in such analyses are described and data systems used in producing the sea ice products are provided.
