Ice Production in Ross Ice Shelf Polynyas during 2017–2018 from Sentinel–1 SAR Images
High sea ice production (SIP) generates high-salinity water, thus, influencing the global thermohaline circulation. Estimation from passive microwave data and heat flux models have indicated that the Ross Ice Shelf polynya ...
Assessing Scale Dependence on Local Sea Level Retrievals from Laser Altimetry Data over Sea Ice
The measurement of sea ice elevation above sea level or the "freeboard" depends upon an accurate retrieval of the local sea level. The local sea level has been previously retrieved from altimetry data alone by the lowest ...
Sea Ice Freeboard in the Ross Sea from Airborne Altimetry IcePod 2016–2017 and a Comparison with IceBridge 2013 and ICESat 2003–2008
As part of the Polynyas and Ice Production in the Ross Sea (PIPERS) project, the IcePod system onboard the LC-130 aircraft based at McMurdo Station was flown over the Ross Sea, Antarctica in November 2016 and 2017, with ...
Weekly Mapping of Sea Ice Freeboard in the Ross Sea from ICESat-2
NASA's ICESat-2 has been providing sea ice freeboard measurements across the polar regions since October 2018. In spite of the outstanding spatial resolution and precision of ICESat-2, the spatial sparsity of the data can ...
