Satellite SAR floe size (ASCII) [Holt, B.]



This dataset contains data floe size distributions obtained from spaceborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery. Floe sizes were derived using an algorithm referenced in 1) Soh, L.-K., B. Holt, and C. Tsatsoulis: Identifying ice floes and computing ice floe distributions in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images, in Analysis of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data of the polar regions, C. Tsatsoulis and R. Kwok (eds.), Springer-Verlag, New York, 9-34, 1998.
