Operational sea ice mapping capabilities utilizing ground truth data are extremely limited due to the remote proximity and harsh environment of the polar regions. Satellite remote sensing offers a sufficient quantity of accurate, high resolution environmental parameters that satisfy many ice mapping requirements. This study explores the application of multiple satellite sensor data combination techniques for sea ice analysis. Sea ice information from visible, infrared, passive microwave, and active radar sensors are examined and open water from other ice types in all regions. MM
