Abstract:

This document contains weather analyses, forecast products, and selected satellite images obtained during the Leads Experiment Leadex from 25 March to 24 April 1992. This NRL Publication is Part 1 of a two-part data compilation report. Part 2 contains daily rawinsonde data obtained at Deadhorse and at the ice camp, and buoy data from four buoys surrounding the ice camp. A special section of Part 1 introduces the European spacecraft ERS-1 Synthetic Aperture Radar SAR data and shows some of the unique images from this sensor - courtesy of the European Space Agency ESA. The report affords an opportunity to compare SAR data over selected locations with visible and infrared data from the DMSP satellite, with microwave imager SSMI data from the same satellite, and with multispectral images from the NOAA satellite system. Special mesoscale weather depictions over the Leadex area, derived from the Navys Second Order Closure Mesoscale Model SOCMM, are shown for each day of the experiment....
