Abstract:

This report documents work which has been performed to develop further the application of microwave science to geophysical property retrieval using satellite synthetic aperture radar SAR. Efforts have included in-situ observations of the microwave properties of sea ice, the documentation of the physical properties which control backscatter intensity, the conduct of laboratory-based studies, the further development and utilization of electromagnetic models, the development of an empirical scattering responses, and the determinations of the sources of backscatter. Included is an executive summary of the research approach. Journal and proceeding papers are included to provide the summary of the results obtained.
