Abstract:

The Ka-band Radiometric Mapping System KRMS was used to acquire high resolution passive microwave imagery of sea ice in the East Greenland and Labrador Seas during March 1987. Images obtained in the East Greenland Sea supported NORDAs GEOSAT ice index validation experiment Labrador Sea images supported the Labrador Ice Margin Experiment LIMEX. In addition, we acquired several image sets that show open ocean in the North Atlantic Ocean and East Greenland Sea regions, glacial ice along the east central margin of the Greenland ice cap near Scoresby Sound, and land along the Avalon Peninsula of Nova Scotia.
